PDM candidate’s votes ‘wrongfully’ rejected in Senate polls: Bilawal
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said Monday that Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) had defeated ‘the selected’ government on every front, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Speaking to the media at Hyderabad, he claimed that Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani, PDM candidate for the seat of Senate chairman, had won the election, and it was due to the rejection of votes by the presiding officer without any justification that the opposition candidate was declared a loser.
“The presiding officer wrongfully rejected the votes cast for our candidate to ensure that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) candidate Sadiq Sanjrani could win the election,” the PPP chairman alleged.
He said the entire nation would see when the court would pronounce its verdict in the Senate elections case.
Bilawal said some important decisions would be taken at the PDM leader’s huddle tomorrow (Tuesday, March 16).
He said contrary to the government’s claims, it was the PPP government in Sindh, and not PTI, that had planted one billion trees, and hence thrice broke the world record. “For this, we will have to give credit to the forest department, which despite limited resources was doing a good job,” he added.
He told the media that the Sindh government was planting trees in the entire province. “Similarly we are growing urban forest in Karachi so that the city’s environment could be protected and people could get jobs,” the PPP chairman claimed.
