PML-N’s victory in the Daska by-polls has validated Bilawal Bhutto’s strategy of fighting the system from within it, said Pakistan Peoples Party’s parliamentarian Shazia Marri in a statement on Sunday.
The PPP fulfilled its commitment to the PML-N in the Daska by-election, the PPP MNA remarked.
Marri, who is also the PPP’s central information secretary, stated that her party was pleased that the PML-N heeded Bilawal’s advice, participated in the by-election and came out victorious.
“The Daska by-election results have shown the entire nation that it is better to contest the government by sitting in assemblies,” she maintained.
She further added that the recent by-election was yet another referendum against the elected government that was won by the people.
The PPP parliamentarian maintained that PML-N’s Nosheen Iftikhar did not defeat Imran Khan’s candidate only to resign from the assembly.
The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was dealt a major blow after opposition PML-N emerged victorious in the much-hyped NA-75 Daska by-election with a huge margin of over 19,000 votes on Saturday.
As per the unconfirmed and unofficial results of all 360 polling stations, PML-N candidate Nosheen Iftikhar bagged 111,220 votes against PTI’s Ali Asjad Malhi, who managed to secure 92,019 votes.
