PPP ready to contest elections in Punjab, KP: Kundi


Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Poverty Alleviation and Social Protection Faisal Karim Kundi on Sunday said that Pakistan People Party (PPP) was ready to contest elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa if Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) dissolved assemblies in the two provinces. “PPP’s leadership, workers, and candidates are ready to contest elections in Punjab and KP as per the wish of PTI chairman”, he said during a news conference held here.

Faisal Kundi said he would ask all the members of his party and collation parties to fulfill Imran Khan’s wish of conducting elections in the two provinces. Criticizing the PTI chairman for delaying the dissolution of assemblies, the SAPM said yesterday Imran Khan had given another date for dissolving assemblies, which was next Friday. “The decision of dissolving assemblies has not been implemented may be due to the unavailability of the architect and masons PTI has hired from different political parties,” he remarked in a satirical way.—NNI
