Owing to this he could not give 100 percent time to election campaign, therefore, he considers himself ineligible for party ticket.He urged the party workers to support PTI’s candidate either he is a young and energetic ideological worker or any veteran politician who had record of winning elections from Lodhran.“I request you all to support whoever gets the party ticket and get him/her elected in the general elections.
