FAISALABAD: Sunni Ittehad Council and defeated candidate from NA-110 Sahibzada Hamid Raza has congratulated PTI chairman Imran Khan on the success of his party in the general elections.

Talking to newsmen here on Tuesday, he also felicitated PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari for securing majority seats in Sindh Assembly. He urged the PML-N, PPP and MMA leadership to accept Imran’s mandate and revise their decision of launching a countrywide movement against the winning party in the best interest of the country. He alleged that no doubt that systematic rigging was done at various polling stations, but under the present international and national scenario, we should hesitate to launch any movement as it would result in weakening the country.
