Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Zartaj Gul has said that her win in general election proves that women can compete with men in politics.
Zartaj won from NA-191, defeating Awais Laghari of Laghari family that has political influence in DG Khan region. She won 79,817 votes and scored 25,000 more votes than her opponent.
In an interview with a private media outlet on Tuesday, she said, “I entered politics to change the system. It does not make a difference whether you are rich or poor, people succeed owing to their mentality.”
She said,”I will play my role in bringing change,” adding, “I am neither a coward nor a hypocrite.”
Speaking of PTI chief Imran Khan, Gul said, “Imran Khan’s critics don’t know him.” She called him “a far-sighted leader who neither bows nor is bought”.
Gul vowed that she would survey every nook and corner of DG Khan.
