    @Silas:
    Why refuse!? If some one is accepting your mandate then they are most welcome. There is no principle that says other parties cannot support PTI!. Please be logical.
    For e.g.If america says that it will support pakistan’s stance over kashmir. In return pakistan says: no, dont support us. You r non-muslims!?!?!

    @Adnan Siddiqi : yeah if you completed your primary education , you would know that the so-called “begging” is called lobbying and it is totally acceptable and permissible to do so in presidential elections like this

    @Adnan Siddiqi:
    I dint see or hear him begging. Can you share a video or news in which he has ”begged” to other parties. This will support your view point with evidence. :)

    @Adnan Siddiqi:
    there is a difference between begging and campaign … when a person is asking for support that certainly does not mean that they are begging !
