Former chief minister Punjab Chaudhry Parvez Elahi after the Lahore High Court (LHC) verdict in case related to the elections date announcement for by-elections in Punjab on Saturday urged the masses to begin preparations for the elections. Elahi while castigating Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif over economic woes said that the PDM-led government pushed the country to the verge of default, but in the upcoming elections, the masses would take revenge on them, adding that the PML-N does not learn from history and still they are following political victimisation path against their opponents. The former CM while admiring the deposed premier’s leadership said that Imran Khan is the most popular leader of the country, adding that only the PTI chief can bring political and economic stability to the country. “The PTI will definitely clean sweep in Punjab’s elections,” claimed Elahi. Meanwhile, the leader Asad Qaiser said LHC verdict in a case related to elections in Punjab was a huge step towards protection of country’s Constitution. The former NA speaker said the LHC verdict was a key verdict of country’s history, and a similar case has also been filed in Peshawar High Court (PHC) for holding election in the province within 90 days. “We will not tolerate violation of constitution,” he added. The PTI leader said the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has destroyed the country’s economy in eight months while inflation, and unemployment are at historic high. On Friday, the LHC ordered the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to hold elections in the province in 90 days. The LHC Justice Jawad Hassan pronounced the reserved verdict on plea filed by the PTI seeking orders for the Punjab governor to immediately announce a date for an election in the province. Justice Jawad Hassan accepted the PTI’s petition and asked the electoral body to stage the polls within the constitutional limit. The court remarked that the ECP was bound to conduct the election in 90 days after dissolution of assembly.
