PTI Will Win Senate Polls: Murad Saeed
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Communication and Postal Services, Murad Saeed has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) believes in transparency in elections and will emerge victorious in upcoming Senate polls.
Conversing with media on Sunday, Murad Saeed said that PTI tabled constitutional amendment in the parliament to change the system of ‘secret balloting’ to ‘open vote’. PTI wanted to end horse-trading and sale-purchase of voters, but the opposition did not cooperate in getting the law changed. He said this has exposed the opposition; it is not serious in bringing transparency in the electoral process.
The minister said the people of Pakistan have rejected the negative politics of the opposition in Gilgit-Baltistan elections, and by staying away from its public rallies in Lahore and Peshawar. He added that the opposition is trying to get NRO from the government, but Prime Minister Imran Khan will never give them any relief in this regard.
Murad Saeed said the incumbent government under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan is committed to end horse-trading and the use of money in the Senate elections. He recalled that former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto desired to bring transparency in elections process but unfortunately, her political party has overlooked the matter.
He said PTI had expelled 20 of its MPAs after they were found guilty of taking money in the 2018 Senate polls. The opposition is involved in money laundering, corruption and illegal occupation on state lands, he claimed.
The incumbent government has taken various steps for the welfare of the masses, the minister said, health cards, Ehsaas program, Langar khanas (food houses) and low cost housing will benefit the under-privileged in the country. TLTP
