MULTAN: Polling is underway in NA-154 Lodharan. The poll time started at 8am and will close at 5pm.
Earlier, the result was challenged by Mr. Tareen through an election petition field under Section 52 of the Election Act on the ground that Mr. Baloch held fake secondary education, intermediate and undergraduate degrees and was involved in illegal means on the polling day as well. The lawyers of both parties completed their arguments and the election tribunal reserved its verdict for today (August 16, 2015).
During General Election on May 11, 2013, Muhammad Siddique Khan Baloch (Independent – who later joined PML-N) had secured the seat of National Assembly from NA-154 constituency (Lodhran) by bagging 86, 177 against the second position holder Jahangir Khan Tareen – Secretary General of PTI- who collected 75,955 votes.
