–PML-Q leader Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi also contacting independent candidates to gather support for his candidature for CM’s office


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Dr Yasmin Rashid has emerged as a strong candidate for the position of Punjab chief minister.

Dr Rashid lost the general election but will reportedly enter the assembly on a reserved seat.

She met PTI chief Imran Khan on Saturday at his residence in Bani Gala and discussed the current political situation in Lahore and Punjab.

Further, Aleem Khan, Mian Mehmoodur Rasheed, Pervaiz Elahi and Fawad Chaudhary are also being seen as the top contenders for the coveted position in case PTI is successful in forming its government in Punjab.

According to media reports, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leader Pervaiz Elahi has also started contacting independent candidates in the province.

It was reported that Elahi was reaching out to the same independent candidates that the PTI was bidding for.

Earlier, People took to Twitter to appeal to PTI’s senior leadership to select the doctor for Punjab’s top office.

Actor and writer, Vasay Chaudhry said, “If there is one person who’s loss has made me sad, it’s Dr Yasmin Rashid and I wish PTI gives her a reserved seat in the Punjab assembly and make her CM because it would be the most brilliant thing to have a woman CM who is hardworking, upright, Loyal and from the working class.”

Rights activist and lawyer Hassaan Niazi said, “Dr Yasmin Rashid is number one on Punjab reserved seats and she is one of the most accomplished doctors of Pakistan, so her name should be considered for Punjab CM.”

TV anchor Maria Memon said, “Yasmin Rashid is a total boss lady!”

TV anchor and journalist Tariq Mateen said, “I would love to see Dr Yasmin Rashid in the seat of Punjab CM.”

One of the users wrote: “SAY YES TO DR YASMIN: After her great fight in Lahore, Dr Yasmin Rashid should be placed at No 1 on the PTI list of reserved women candidates. She deserves to be a CM Punjab.”

Another wrote: “If @PTIofficial is making government in Punjab then they should appoint #YasmeenRashid as #CMPunjab @ImranKhanPTI She has done great work.”
