The PPP chairman; however, rejected the allegations of widespread rigging in the 8th February’s general election. He said that to end the ‘cycle of rigging’ in elections, politicians need to reach a consensus.
“The politicians need to agree that the match should be played fairly and the result should also be accepted,” Bilawal added.
Bilawal said that the PPP is playing a leading role in election reforms, but sometimes a party or a politician tries to hinder the process.
He said that cases related to election rigging are being heard in election tribunals. Bilawal said that Sindh government has done ‘significant’ work in the health sector, vowing to do the same in Balochistan
He added that the PPP will provide relief to the people of Balochistan and ensure that they have access to quality healthcare and education.
