Maryam said that the opposition must stand before the public as after today their true face has been unmasked.
While Information Minister Maryum Aurangzeb said that undemocratic elements rigged the Senate elections and engaged in corruption.
She claimed that the real face of the opposition parties had been unmasked, adding that today Bhutto has truly been martyred.
Aurangzeb said that lawmakers who were actually pawns of their political masters had come to the fray.
The same people who were dancing in 2014 have once again come forward.
While PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry said that cheap tactics were at play during the Senate elections.
“Our party lost today because our party wants to foster democracy in the country,” he added.
We never begged anyone for votes as we stand for our principles and not political maneuvering.
