PTI demands LG polls in Punjab


Following the success of its public gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) on Monday demanded immediate holding of local government (LG) elections in Punjab.
PTI Lahore President Mehmoodur Rashid, Zaheer Khokhar, Dr Murad Raas, Abdul Rasheed Bhatti, Ishtiaq Malik and Rana Akhtar Hussain made this demand while addressing a press conference at the party office. They demanded that LG polls should be conducted immediately after completion of new voter lists.
The PTI leaders said that the party will move ahead with teamwork to steer the country out of crises. Rashid said that the PTI had won the first round and its future largely depended on Lahore. “The PTI will make the country an Islamic welfare state under the leadership of Imran Khan,” he said.
The PTI leaders said that October 30 was the first round while similar rounds would take place in other parts of the country to motivate the masses for a change. They claimed that the PTI holds sway in the provincial capital and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had become history after the gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan.
The PTI leaders claimed that the masses had voted in favour of PTI at Minar-e-Pakistan and both the time-tested PML-N and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) would be voted out of power in the next elections. To a question, he said that the PTI, in its central executive meeting after Eid, would spell out its roadmap. He said that the PML-N had fooled people a lot, as it secured votes in the last elections because people had no third option.
