Pakistan People’s Party Punjab President and former federal minister Mian Manzoor Ahmad Wattoo has said that negative and baseless propaganda against the PPP can never hide the truth of its popularity in all the provinces.
In a statement on Wednesday, he said the PPP was a symbol of federation and equally popular in all the provinces and Gilgit-Baltistan, adding that no other party could claim to be a party of the federation.
He said the PPP was contesting against nationalist, regional, provincial or GT road parties and the people would elect the PPP for the country’s prosperity and the federation.
He said the report of election commission of Pakistan expressed the reality that PPP was only and a popular party of the country and it was the answer for those elements who were saying the PPP had shortage of candidates for the elections.
He said that PPP candidates from every constituency of the country were participating in the elections 2013.
He said the PPP secretariat received 16,973 applications for candidature which was far better than the PML-N which had received just 4,500 applications.
Mian Manzoor Wattoo said that process of seat adjustment with PML-Q was almost finalised and the contention on a few seats would be settled in a day or so. When asked to be specific in his answer he replied that 95 per cent matter on seat adjustment with Q-League was settled.
Mian Manzoor Wattoo said that PPP has great respect for Sufis and saints and that was the reason the spiritual leaders have special leaning toward them. He further said that like the Sufis the PPP also wanted end to the current spate of terrorism across the country.
