HYDERABAD/ISLAMABAD, March 15: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that when the court pronounces its verdict on the issue of rejection of seven valid votes in the Senate Chairman election, the whole of Pakistan will know that the PDM not only defeated current government in the National Assembly but in the Senate as well.
Addressing a function in connection with a campaign to plant 100,000 trees in Khatri Forest near Hyderabad, the PPP Chairman said that PDM candidates had won in the by-elections in every corner of the country. PDM also participated in the Senate elections and not only participated but also succeeded adding that when the PTI government was defeated from one house to another, it got frustrated.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari further said that the PDM leadership would meet tomorrow in which the next course of action would be decided.
