PESHAWAR (Dunya News) - Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur denounced what he termed as the worst rigging in history, repeating the February 8 electoral irregularities in recent by-elections held on April 21.

During a press conference, Chief Minister Gandapur talked about the 'disputed' mandate.
