Daska: Federal Information Minister Shibli Faraz on Sunday said that despite all the opposition parties coming together, Prime Minister Imran Khan alone is enough to fight them.

He was addressing along with other PTI leaders on the occasion of his visit to Daska on Friday, February 19 to offer condolences to the family of the PTI worker who was killed in the chaos in NA-75 constituency.

Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry, Assistant Chief Minister Punjab Firdous Ashiq Awan, and Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Youth Affairs Usman Dar also offered condolences.

Addressing a press conference after meeting the family members of the slain activist, Shibli Faraz said that “the PML-N is pursuing a policy of bullying and murder.”

“In the past, women and children were shot dead in Model Town, Lahore, and the main character in this tragedy was Rana Sanaullah, who also harassed people in the by-elections,” Faraz said.

“Those who won the 2018 general election by a margin of 40,000 votes have lost the by-elections,” he added.

Firdous Ashiq Awan gave a joke to PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz, who visited Daska early on Sunday, saying that the “fake princess” called the by-elections a “war” and wanted to injure the killer on stage. Emotions of the family of the deceased worker called for.

Awan added that the PML-N has always “patronized drug dealers and the occupation mafia.”

On the other hand, Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that he wanted to see Maryam Nawaz speak the truth at least once, adding that he always lies about not owning property in London or even Pakistan.

He said the PTI would abide by the orders of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), adding that the Punjab government was “completely neutral in the elections”.

“Our candidate Ali Asjad Malihi has clearly won from NA-75 and once the official results are announced, we will be here to celebrate his victory,” Chaudhry said. “We want the vote to be conducted electronically so that the vote can be traced [and not rigged]”

He said that the Ministry of Technology has developed a system for electronic voting which will soon be transferred to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

“We lost the Karachi and Nowshera elections but did not allege fraud and accepted the results,” he said. “This is the real difference between a democratic party and a non-democratic party that was raised in the lap of a dictator.”
