We have also seen processions of both parties and have seen a large number of supporters in PTI processions. Likewise same, when the by-elections took place yesterday morning, there was a very little number of youth at the polling station NA-120.
Muhammad Asif who was present at the polling camp of PTI said, “We have the support of the youth as our party draws support from the youth”.
He was with supporting opinion that his party is built to support youth dissatisfaction with the ruling class. He added in his supporting statement at the camp that youth will turn up for vote before the end of the polling deadline. Overall he attributed the low number as a traditional turnout in a by-election.
Whereas, PML-N also claimed youth support, Shahbaz Butt, a PML-N worker said, NA-120 holds strong hold of PML-N and Sharif family.
