Why locals in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir are protesting against Nawaz Sharif's PML(N), ISI – Watch video

New Delhi: Days after Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) won the elections in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, huge protests have erupted in towns like Muzaffarabad, Kotli, Chinari and Mirpur.

Protests broke out after members of the PML (N) killed a supporter of the Muslim Conference (MC) in Muzaffarabad. Locals allege that Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, and others rigged the July 21 elections in favour of PML (N).

The voters said that they were not allowed to exercise their franchise and polls in PoK have always been fixed in favour of the federal ruling party.

The PML-N has bagged 31 seats out of the 41 up for grabs, while the Muslim Conference and Pakistan People's party bagged three seats each.

The criticism of Sharif from his political opponents and occasional strains in his relations with the army have raised questions about prospects for his government. Pakistan's next general election is due in 2018.
