Chickpeas seller to contest elections for PA-254


Several actresses, singers and even eunuchs submitted their nomination forms to contest general elections in Pakistan this year.

In another surprising move, Chacha Mushtaq, a peddler, has announced to contest polls for a provincial assembly seat from Punjab.

Chacha Mushtaq got nomination papers on Saturday and was planning to submit it to returning officer in Muzaffargarh for PA-254 on Sunday.

Chacha says he is selling chickpeas by travelling in the streets since 1940. “I am confident to win MPA seat from PA-254,” said Mushtaq, who was elected as labour councilor in former president Pervez Musharraf’s era. Musharraf had invited Chacha to Islamabad when he was elected as councilor.
