PML-N’s victory of Lodhran termed big political upset

PML-N’s victory of Lodhran termed big political upset

ISLAMABAD: The victory of PML-N candidate in by-election of NA-154 Lodhran is termed a big political upset and giving something new political indications that scenario of South Punjab and Central Punjab has changed now.

Renowned senior analyst Sohail Warraich, while talking to anchor Shahzeb Khanzada in his programme ‘Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Saath’ on Geo TV on Monday said that the victory of PML-N candidate is a big political upset.

He said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif launched his campaign after his disqualification in such a way that led first win in Chakwal by-election and after that this victory in Lodhran.

He said that last time Jehangir Tareen won this constituency with a big margin. But this time the election of Iqbal Shah was quite appropriate. He donated his costliest land for the people and his son Amir Iqbal is also popular among people.

He said that people of Lodhran thought that Iqbal Shah was a good candidate and the reason they preferred to cast their vote in favour of PML-N over PTI was that Tareen was unable to fulfill several promises made with the people and second reason was change in political atmosphere and highlighting of resistive politics. Another factor was that the PML-N did a lot of development work.

He said that all thought that Tareen would win but with one or two thousand vote margin but not expected he would be defeated by margin of over twenty thousand votes. Sohail Warraich said that in his opinion the politics is now on prime in Pakistan. He said that it happened in Pakistan whenever a victim card is played.
