The NA-249 seats have been vacant after Pakistan’s Faisal Vawda Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) stepped down as MNA to take on the role of senator.

There are 339,552 registered voters in the constituencies, where 277 polling stations have been established. All of these polling stations have been declared sensitive or very sensitive.

Hope to win

However, PTI hopes for another victory in the constituency. “Pakistanis want to see change. They are tired of the two-party system, led by the Sharif and Zardari families. Our slogan ‘Naya Pakistan’ is coming true and it will pave the way for PTI victory here, the PTI candidate Afridi defended.

When asked about the report on the decline in PTI’s popularity, he denied the news. Apart from Afridi, PSP chairman Mustafa Kamal also hopes to win the by-election.

“People are disappointed with the current government’s performance. Now I hope to win a seat by a significant vote margin,” he argued.

Likewise, the PPP Mandokail stated that it was his turn to steal the attention because the Sindh government had performed “poorly” and people appreciated the party’s liberal and progressive policies on various issues.

Last election

In the last general election, Mandokhail was only able to pocket 7,236 votes in the constituency, which is even smaller than the TLP candidate, who collected 23,981 votes. However, now a question mark remains on the fate of the TLP in the constituencies, with the federal government deciding to ban the party.

Vawda, who bagged 35,344 votes, has won the 2018 elections in the constituency, with PML-N’s Shehbaz Sharif trailing behind with 34,626 votes. About 8,000 votes in favor of Shehbaz were rejected in the last general election. Meanwhile, the MQM-P candidate won 13,534 votes.

Back then, Shehbaz claimed that if his vote was not rejected, he would have won a seat.

This sentiment was echoed by Ismail.

“The 2018 elections were rigged and hijacked. If the elections were free and fair, the PML-N would have won in NA-249, and throughout Pakistan,” he claims.

He said that if he won the by-election, the priority would be ensuring the availability of drinking water in the area, building infrastructure, and providing access to education and health facilities for the community.

By News Desk

ISLAMABAD: Home Minister Sheikh Rashid said on Sunday that while the government has not received a request to remove Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president Maryam Nawaz from the Exit Control List (ECL), the Prime Minister is against such a possibility.

He conveyed this when interacting with journalists at the inauguration ceremony of the collaboration of the World Health Organization and the Directorate of Health (MCI) in raising awareness and providing logistical support for the Covid-19 epidemic.

On the contention among the opposition Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), Rashid said their “collapse” would ultimately benefit Prime Minister Imran Khan and “further strengthen his government”.

He said the PDM’s long march had now become a “distant dream” as the alliance’s two major parties – PML-N and PPP were “destined to step in opposite paths”. “A broken alliance is no longer a threat to the government,” he added.

Maryam is politically immature, knows nothing about politics: Dr. Firdous | Instant News

LAHORE – Special Assistant to the Chief Information Minister Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the fake daughter and her servants had targeted Prime Minister Imran Khan again just to save face and political mileage.

Speaking to media in Dar-ul-Aman here on Saturday, he said that the government’s accusations of equalizing the Rs2.5 billion sugar subsidy on the government had forgotten that the Rs27 billion subsidy was given during their tenure and was distributed among nieces, nephews, sons and friends. . .

The award goes to the PTI government for carrying out an impartial investigation into the sugar subsidy issue and bringing those responsible to the books, he said.

The Special Assistant said that Maryam Nawaz was politically immature and knew nothing about politics. Maryam could only be a good actress but sadly, she didn’t get that chance because of the corona situation, she said.

He said Bilawal Bhutto made a wise decision not to hold a demonstration in Rawalpindi because of the current corona surge and the government welcomed the move.

For a question, Dr Firdous said that underage politicians should stop politics because they can’t understand the ups and downs of politics and they need to learn more. He said, PDM is now a history because of the differences between PML-N and PPP, and now the two have begun to open up to each other. SACM said the coronavirus continues to wreak havoc on the country as 67 people have lost their lives including 48 from Punjab over the past 24 hours. He asked residents to take the corona situation seriously and follow SOPs.

The strict lockdown decision will be taken in the NCOC meeting which will be held today (Sunday), he said.

She said the government was committed to turning helpless Darul Aman girls into productive citizens of society by educating and training them. He said the PTI government regards service to humanity as a sacred mission and is committed to healing the wounds of women who are deserving and in need, adding that Dar-ul-Aman has been established in each of the 36 districts in the province and is providing welfare facilities for women who entitled.

He said the purpose of the visit was to ensure that the institutions established for the welfare of the community could carry out their responsibilities and duties efficiently or not. “I am happy to know that social welfare institutions like Dar-ul-Aman are playing their part in providing all kinds of assistance to women who are in need and who are not serving,” she said.

Dr Firdous regrets that the majority of women living in Dar-ul-Aman are victims of domestic violence and gender-based discrimination.

Social inequality and discriminatory attitudes force women to come here, he said. He said that intolerance in society is increasing because our educational institutions only educate young people and not educate them.

SACM says that, unfortunately, mothers also forget to play their part. “We cannot change society unless we change our mindset,” he said.

She emphasized that psychotherapy should be provided for women’s mental health rehabilitation at Dar-ul-Aman and women’s psychotherapy courses should also be conducted in our educational institutions.

Parents and government must fulfill their collective responsibility to keep society on the right track, he said.

Then, the Special Assistant revisits the arrangements at Dar-ul-Aman and meets the oppressed girls there. He also listened to their problems one by one and directed the relevant authorities to resolve them as early as possible. He also distributed gifts among the inmates.
