PTI is celebrating its victory in the first two phases of the local government (LG) elections of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK). The AJK LG elections were held on Saturday with results coming in on Sunday.
PTI leaders have taken to Twitter to congratulate the party, claiming that the result of the LG elections is proof that AJK has rejected the PDM coalition government.
“After 31 years, the local elections were held in Azad Kashmir. What didn’t the federal government do? They appointed officers, invested money, and pressured them, yet these are the results of these elections. Tehreek-e-Insaf faced independent candidates. The burden of Nawaz Sharif and Zardari is so high that both parties have been crushed,” Fawad Chaudhry said.
اکتیس سال بعد آزاد کشمیر میں بلدیاتی انتخابات ہوئے وفاقی حکومت نے کیا نہیں کرلیا افسران لگائے، پیسہ ڈالا دباؤ ڈالا گیااور یہ ہیں ان انتخابات کے نتائج، تحریک انصاف کا مقابلہ آزاد امیدواروں سے ہوا ، نواز شریف اور زرداری کا بوجھ اتنا زیادہ ہے کہ دونوں جماعتیں اس بوجھ میں دب چکی ہیں pic.twitter.com/Wg0a2prL92

“From the results of the Kashmir election, PDM must have gotten a good idea of the mood of the people – the entire state missionary and money was spent, but it had to be two or four due to a bad defeat – today Imran Khan has become the biggest political reality of Pakistan – for the imported government. A dangerous player and a darling of the masses,” Imran Ismail said.
کشمیر الیکشن کے نتائج سے PDM کو عوام کے موڈ کا بخوبی اندازہ ہوگیا ہوگا- پوری اسٹیٹ مشنری اور پیسہ لگا کہ بھی برُی شکست سے دو چار ہونا پڑا- آج عمران خان پاکستان کی سب سے بڑی سیاسی حقیقت بن چکے ہیں- امپورٹڈ سرکار کے لیے ایک خطرناک کھلاڑی اور عوام کا لاڈلا pic.twitter.com/4ukqRqw1e1
