The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday barred Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif from the inauguration of the dam in Kahuta ahead of by-elections in PP-7 Rawalpindi.
The Prime Minister was stopped by the ECP from violating the code of conduct. He was scheduled to inaugurate the dam in Kahuta on June 29. The area falls within the constituency of PP-7 Rawalpindi.
