Amjad Hussain Advocate, leader of the opposition in Gilgit-Baltistan Assembly and president of the provincial chapter of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), said on Wednesday that first puppets were planted after the 2018 general elections and then the same method was used in Gilgit-Baltistan in the recent provincial elections. 

He was speaking to the media in Karachi on Wednesday. A delegation led by Amjad Hussain and former Gilgit-Baltistan chief minister Mehdi Shah visited the Karachi secretariat of the PPP on Wednesday and paid a tribute to martyrs at the Yadgar-e-Shohada. Amjad Hussein said it had been decided at a meeting with Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah that problems of Gilgit-Baltistan people living in Karachi would be solved. He said that Gilgit-Baltistan students in Karachi would hear a good news from the Sindh government soon. 

PPP leader Mehdi Shah said that a Buzdar-like person had been made chief minister of Gilgit-Baltistan and someone else was running the provincial government. He said the PPP did not lose the Gilgit-Baltistan elections; the election was manipulated to defeat the PPP. He said that in fact the PPP won the Gilgit-Baltistan elections. He said the majority of people voted for the PPP in the Gilgit-Baltistan elections. He thanked PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for taking part in the party’s election campaign in Gilgit-Baltistan.
