Opposition’s tactics will not prevent PTI wining Senate election: PM Imran  

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said they would successfully win Senate elections despite tactics being used by the opposition to entice the lawmakers with money.

During a meeting with National Assembly lawmakers today the prime minister said the opposition was a supporter of the system based on rigging and a hurdle in the way of transparency while the government stood firm with his unwavering commitment to transparency in the electoral process.

The meeting was also attended by Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and Senate candidate from Islamabad seat Abdul Hafeez Shaikh. He said the opponents of open ballots wanted the continuation of a corrupt system in the country. 

PTI, he continued, was the party that has led the struggle of transparency in the system and eradication of corruption into a movement. PM Imran while speaking to the MNAs from Punjab said that they would solve issues highlighted by the lawmakers.

 “For the first time, we have given more development projects to the impoverished constituencies,” he said adding that it was their priority to bring such areas at equality with other developed areas of the province.

PM Imran said that he was a supporter of open ballot owing to the ongoing practices used by the opposition even in this poll to buy voters ahead of the Senate elections.

“Our voters have been lured with monetary benefits, though, they stand united and will vote for the PTI candidates,” Imran Khan said. The prime minister had also invited the lawmakers part of the federal coalition at a luncheon today.

It is worth mentioning here that a delegation of MQM-P earlier in the day met with Prime Minister Imran Khan at the Parliament Lodges. The meeting discussed strategy for upcoming Senate elections, working relationships and other important issues related to Sindh.

Matters related to Karachi Package, jobs, Hyderabad University, closure of party offices, and missing of MQM-P workers also came under discussion.
