EVMs ‘globally rejected obstruction’ in transparency: Hamza


Opposition leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz Sharif has said that Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) have been rejected globally and termed them ‘an obstruction in achieving transparency’.
Talking to media on Friday after appearing before the Accountability court, Hamza Shahbaz said that Prime Minister Imran Khan was ‘selected and then rejected’. Government was ‘hiding its face’ behind EVMs after being rejected by the people, Hamza said.
While talking about TLP episode, Hamza said that a minister said government was not ready to tackle extremism and hence retaliated. “How will the world categorize you when you will utter words like these about your own state?” he asked, suggesting that such people should be banned.
Punjab Assembly’s opposition leader alleged that government was involved in black marketing of sugar and wheat. “They [government] earn billions by creating shortage of wheat and sugar” he alleged.
Hamza Shahbaz said that government was cherishing its own ‘ATMs’ by producing costly energy through Furnace Oil. “No developments have been made on LNG terminals” Hamza regretted.
