Share This

ISLAMABAD: Reham Khan, former wife of Imran Khan, said on Tuesday that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf faced a heavy defeat in the recent Lodhran by-poll, and its the first time a party is losing popularity even before coming in power.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) candidate Iqbal Shah received 113,542 votes, while his competitor, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Ali Tareen, contesting his first election on his father, Jahangir Tareen’s seat, got 85,933 votes in the by-election held on Monday.

Khan in a video message said that she feels sorry for the party workers and its ideological supporters.

“Whenever they are in pressure they start attacking people like me,” she said, “they consider Nawaz Sharif or Maryam Nawaz behind conspiracies against them. Was selection of Ali Jahanghir Tareen a conspiracy by Nawaz or God forbid suggestion by me.”

She said that the voters have rejected PTI as the party has deviated from its vision.
