Parliamentary leader of the opposition party, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, Sardar Mohammad Yusuf, has alleged that the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf had been utilizing government resources in order to influence the March 31 local body elections.
Speaking at a public meeting on Thursday, Yusuf said that Federal Railways Minister Azam Khan Swati and other PTI lawmakers had been utilizing the government’s apparatus and resources to influence voters towards their candidate.
The PML-N leader said the PTI had been defeated in the first stage of local government elections in the province and that the second phase would not be any different.
He assailed Prime Minister Imran Khan over the failure to fulfill promises of giving 0.5 million houses and one million jobs to the public, adding that the PTI government’s poor economic policies had thrown the country to near bankruptcy.
Yusuf said that PML-N supremo would return to the country soon and lead the nation. He said his party had decided the final candidates for local government elections in the province and claimed that his party would be the victor.
