Multan

PTI member of National Assembly Malik Aamir Dogar has said that the killings of political workers at the hands of ‘hooligans’ of the ruling party reflects terrorist mindset of the government and this terrorism was committed to threaten the voters.

Talking to journalists here on Tuesday, he added that the PTI workers would encounter government-backed terrorism and thwart PML-N’s plans to rig the next round of local government election.

He claimed that the PTI candidates would bag historic victory in Multan and prove that this town is a fortress of the party. He asserted that the PTI workers would make all-out efforts to keep the atmosphere peaceful and participate in the election process.

He said that the PTI workers have spread out to each nook and corner of Multan and every wing of the party is active to make the party candidates successful. He appealed to the workers to show unity and continue their struggle to defeat PML-N. He anticipated that the time was very near when corrupt elements responsible for corruption in Nandipur, Metro Bus, LNG and other projects would be held accountable for embezzling national money. He claimed that the day would dawn very soon when Pakistan would make progress under the leadership of Imran Khan.
