Following Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader and Former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani’s victory in the Senate Elections today, 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.
Addressing a press conference, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz 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.
On the other hand, SAPM Shahbaz Gill jumped in via his tweet to challenge Gilani’s victory.
غیر حتمی طور پر 7 ووٹ رجیکٹ ہوئے ہیں۔ پانچ ووٹ کا فرق ہے۔ ابھی اس نتیجہ کو چیلنج کریں گے۔

Dr. Faisal Javed Khan from PTI extends congratulations to PTI’s Fauzia Arshad for securing 174 votes in the Senate election.
“Her winning margin was evidence enough that “there was a clear horse-trading on the men’s seat,” his tweet read.
Congratulations Fauzia Arshad PTI for winning the women seat from Islamabad 174 vs 161

نوٹوں کی چمک جیت گئی ۔۔۔ جمہوریت ہار گئی۔
گیلانی کی جیت دراصل جمہوری اقدار کی ہار ہے۔
