    This is another political stunt of PTI with so many free-riders around…
    PTI spent huge money on large tv ads showing tailor, carpenter, driver etc as winners in so-called intra party elections. But, as expected, the party tickets have only been awarded to blue-eyed “electables” while totally ignoring these winners of intra party and leaving the founding members in the wild guessing!
    If a person is not sincere with his party workers, hecan never be sincere with his country.

    To me PPP and PMLN represent the true face of Pakistani democracy. Their alliance is only good news for Pakistan.

    Reading comments from ‘N’ supporters, it seems they just can’t wrap their head around the idea that the people have decided for change.

    @Ch. Allah Daad:
    You are 100% correct – PPP and PML-N are the only true democratic parties. They should form an alliance, make it official, and destroy PTI in the upcoming elections.

    @ hasan

    Who told you that Imran Khan ran long expensive tv advertisements with his own money? Are you deliberately keeping your eyes closed about the glaring fact that Allama Doctor-Know All Imran Ahmed Khan Niazi has been collecting zakat & donations for most part of his life?

    The Allama-Know All has recently extended another begging bowl by launching Naya Fund to extract more donations from Pakistanis.

    The fact of the matter is that, except for a few pseudo-intellectual trolls, Pakistanis have recognised his conspiracies.

    minority members are also honourable for all pakistanies bcz they are also citizon of pakistan like other muslim pakistani’s when they obey the rolles regulation and laws of this country. It is mostly seen that they respect the law more better than other pakistani’s and are more sencere than others with their country, love their country, work hard for their country and always keep good wisher for their beloved country. So, this is their natural moral and leagal right to be given chance to participate in the government and share all problems faced to the nation. this is our Quid’s saying there will be no difference between black and white, muslim and non muslim and majority or minority. Islam is also giving us the message to respect each other love all the human being and live with love with all our fellos, friends neighbours and all the world. The problem begins, when others create problems for muslims in their contries and as a natural re-action sometime temporatue goes up and unwanted occorence happens. We all pakistani’s dislike and discourage such happenigs whether in Pakistan or outside Pakistan.
