Minister for Information Senator Shibli Faraz slams the opposition parties for not accepting their defeat in elections and asked them to end this bad tradition.
In his tweet on Tuesday, Shibli Faraz said that this act is contrary to democratic norms, adding that those delivering lectures on democracy should adopt democratic conduct.
The Minister said the emotional statements of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari are devoid of facts and logic.
Shibli Faraz expressed his surprise that those raising slogans regarding the sanctity of vote are not ready to respect the ballot of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan.
ووٹ کو عزت دو کے نعرے لگانے والے گلگت بلتستان کے عوام کے ووٹ کو عزت دینے کو تیار نہیں؟ جی بی میں تمام سروے پاکستان تحریک انصاف کی برتری اور عمران خان کو مقبول رہنما دکھا چکے تھے ۔ گذشتہ دس سال میں گلگت بلتستان کے عوام کیلئے کچھ نہ کرنے والوں کو ووٹ کیسے ملتے؟

Shibli Faraz reminded that all the surveys showed the lead of PTI in Gilgit-Baltistan with Prime Minister Imran Khan as the most popular leader.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has called for a protest against rigging in Gilgit-Baltistan elections.
Secretary-General PPP Nayyar Bukhari said that the party organizations would hold peaceful protests outside press clubs across the country.
Nayyar Bukhari said that Chairman Bilawal Bhutto was participating in a public protest rally against vote thieves in Gilgit.
The PPP secretary-general also said that the protest rally of thousands of citizens in Gilgit was a referendum against the nexus between the government and the Election Commission.
Nayyar Bukhari said that party officials and workers would ensure strict implementation of precautionary measures during the protest.
Previously, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has alleged that Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) took the lead in Gilgit Baltistan Elections 2020 through the rigging.
Taking to her Twitter handle, Maryam Nawaz had said PTI neither had existence in Gilgit in past nor it has any future in the northern region. PTI took lead in the elections by bullying, threatening and rigging.
