PMLN’s candidate Malik Uzair Khan won NA69 from Khushab with comfortable margin against PTI. This by-election got interesting as leader of PTI, Imran Khan himself conducted two jalsas during by-election campaign. Various other leaders of PTI, including Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Javed Hashmi, Jehangir Tareen and other provincial leadership was actively campaigning for this seat. PTI’s coalition partner Shiekh Rasheed also campaigned for PTI on this seat and in a slip of tongue, he requested everyone to vote for “Pen & Ink Pot” instead of “Bat”. Despite best efforts from PTI’s top leadership and volition partner, they lost this seat.

PK50 triangular contest for KPK’s provincial seat was interesting where PTI’s candidate won with around 26,000 votes, the runner up independent candidate scored around 23,000 and PMLN’s candidate got around 22,000.

    This is just the beginning of the end. PTI has committed many political mistakes, and his foolishness continues. On TV talk shows he looks a joker when he continues non-stop (this is not our jung, we are not on board, drone attacks, talk with taliban, central government bad policies and we cannot do any thing etc. etc.). If he has appeared on TV and before media thousand times, he said the same thousand times, no commas and full stop in between them, and not the slightest change of script.

    In all fairness, Imran is losing ground rapidly.
