    It’s Imran Khan’s right to act optimistic but the writing on the wall is clear. Politics of allegations, indecent words and lies has been rejected. He could prove nothing in KPK that has rampant corruption and misuse. With such a sullied and 2nd hand team, his is a lost cause. Recommend

    You should work in KPK for better results in Punjab. Only conspiracies against federal government will not enough to achieve these. Recommend

    This is important to learn by leader than followers. This defeat clearly conveyed a message that your narrative declined by common people. You can de-seat someone based on technical grounds but cannot seat someone on the same ground.

    The other one message inheritance politics although bad but do not work in every case.

    The leadership should revisit their approach that must be positive.Recommend

    Pathetic comments.
    Tareen 1 electable was fighting against 3 electable and he lost. Nothing more to it.

    PTI had nothing to offer the remaining electable as they are not in power.

    PTI just needs to do proper planning in each constituency when the final election comes and ensure that Imran Khan wave starts and peaks at the right moment.Recommend
