While leaving the party, Mir Aslam Rind accused the PML-N Balochistan President of doing nepotism in awarding the party tickets. He said that the party provincial chief awarded a ticket to his son-in-law while ignoring the merit.
Mir Aslam Rind maintained that a candidate should be a resident of the constituency, he is vying for. “People of other districts cannot be allowed to contest the elections,” he added.
Mir Aslam Rind said that he will be contesting the election as an independent from the provincial assembly seat PB-42.
It is pertinent to mention here that differences have emerged within the PML-N s Quetta chapter over election tickets distribution and former Deputy Mayor Quetta Younus Baloch decided to contest elections independently.
