Larkana no more stronghold of PPP, says Firdous

ISLAMABAD: While expressing her reaction on the by-election results in PS-11, Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said on Friday that Larkana is no more stronghold of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and now it belongs to common people.

Moazim Ali Abbasi of Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) defeated his main rival from PPP Jameel Ahmed Soomro by 5,536 votes in the by-election of the Sindh Assembly constituency PS-11-Larkana-II on October 17.

In a tweet, the special assistant said that now everyone has clearly seen that who came via rigging and who by actual public support.

“The narrative of those making hue and cry over rigging has failed, PPP’s defeat in the by-election is sufficient to open their eyes,” she said.

Firdous also said that the result of this by-election is sufficient to serve as a lesson to all those who were calling the previous general elections rigged and were demanding fresh polls.
