Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, the recently resigned PTI president, Qadir Bakhsh Kalmati, senior leaders Inayat Khattak and Tariq Baloch, and other officials accused the Sheikh of deliberately fielding weak candidates in PS-88 to ensure victory for the Pakistani people. Party candidate.
In the PS-88 by-election, PPP candidate Yousaf Baloch won the electoral district by pocketing more than 24,000 votes against TLP candidate Syed Kashif Shah, who was in second place after bagging 6,099 votes. PTI Candidate Jansher Junejo and Muttahida Qaumi-Pakistan Movement Candidate Sajid Ahmed received 4,870 and 2,634 votes, respectively
Electoral districts have been vacant due to the deaths of PPP MPA and Sindh Ghulam minister Murtaza Baloch due to infection with the new coronavirus in June last year. In a press, Kalmati alleged that the Shaykh had used the PTI and its workers for personal gain, and as a result, the party’s popularity declined in the city. “In the 2018 poll, the candidate for PTI Captain (Purnawirawan) Muhammad Rizwan came in second with 16,386 votes, but now when PPP is in the worst situation due to bad governance and corruption, PTI candidate Junejo is in third place with around 4,800 votes, ” she says.
Kalmati admitted that Junejo worked as a contractor with Ghulam Murtaza Baloch. “Because of the understanding between the Sheikh and the PPP leadership, Junejo was given a PTI ticket to pave the way for Yousaf Baloch’s victory in the opinion polls,” he accused.
The PTI leadership from Malir also criticized the PPP-led Sindh government for “destroying the district”. “The entire cultivation has been destroyed while more than 20,000 hectares of land have been occupied in the district, thanks to the provincial government,” he said.
In January, Kalmati had resigned from the presidency of Malir District in protest at giving Jansher Junejo party tickets for the PS-88 by-election. He had warned the party leadership of an embarrassing defeat.
Separately, PTI president Karachi and MPA Khurram Sher Zaman, speaking to media outside the Malir Court where the Sheikh was present, said the PPP had taken revenge from lawmakers from opposing parties and had withdrawn their security. “If there are any casualties, Bilawal Zardari and Murad Ali Shah will be held responsible for it,” he warned.
He said the media had shown the manipulation of the elections in PS-88, thus revealing the “true face of PPP”. Zaman said that the Shaykh’s fault was that he spoke out against the corruption of Murad Ali Shah and the Sindh government.
“The PTI war against the Sindh government will continue to eradicate billions of rupees in corruption in the province and give the Sindh people rights,” he said. PTI Sindh Assembly members Saeed Afridi, Raja Azhar, Ali GG, Shahnawaz Jadoon, Dua Bhutto and a large number of party leaders and workers attended the court.
