‘There Was A Clear Horse-Trading On Men’s Seat’
On the other hand, the ruling party of PTI has termed this victory as clear ‘rigging’.
PTI leaders reacted Yousaf Raza Gilani’s shocking victory against the party’s Abdul Hafeez Sheikh.
Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz, while addressing a presser, said that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s concern about ‘horse-trading’ in the Senate election proved to be true.
The Prime Minister is striving for transparency in the election, Faraz added. He further added that in the history of the country, democracy has been mocked today.
The minister further added that this corrupt system has paralyzed the country, the Senate election has proved that looting has come to power, Pakistan has become poor and their essential assets and properties have been shifted abroad.
Prime Minister Imran Khan is the only solution towards Pakistan’s development, he added.
