BADIN: The Bilawal Bhutto led Pakistan People’s Party is likely to suffer a shocking defeat in Badin at the hands of Zulfiqar Mirza and his aides, as unofficial preliminary results show PML-N and Mirza group leading the poll count.
Details reveal that representatives from Mirza-led alliance are ahead in the local body elections from various areas of the district.
Unofficial results show Dr Mirza group has won in 10 wards of the municipal committee of Badin out of the 14 wards where elections were contested.
“PPP did not lose, it a defeat for the Zardari gang,” said Mirza while speaking to a local news channel.
He added that the PPP was still his party.
“It a tragedy that Bilawal came to Badin and I could not join him,” said Mirza while referring to Bilawal’s recent rally held in Badin in the run up to the LG polls.
He stated further that Bilawal is misguided by his father, and that he does not hold anything against PPP’s chairman.
Answering another question regarding PTI chief Imran Khan, Mirza praised Imran and referred to him as a “good leader”.
“I like Imran Khan as a leader and a politician, and do like the fact that he does not mince his words,” said Mirza.
The polling for the formation of municipal corporation, municipal committees, town committees and union councils in the second leg of local government elections came to an end peacefully in all polling stations of 14 districts in Hyderabad, Mirpurkhas and Nawabshah divisions on Thursday.
The Dr Mirza-led alliance emerged victorious in town committees of Tando Bago, Pangrio, Nindo Shahar and Khoski town.
