Islamabad, November 14: PPP in Gilgit – Baltistan was shook to the core when Muhammad Ayub Shah, an independent candidate, emerged victorious in polls against Ghulam Muhammad, the party’s provincial general secretary, in LA – 21, Ghizar 3, by a margin of 345 votes, only.
In the past Ayub had tried his luck twice in the field of electoral politicsbut could not win against Ghulam Muhammad. But this time he was able to prove his supremacy in vote counts. Let’s inform our readers that almost all TV channels in Pakistan, save for Aaj TV, have wrongly reported victory of Ghulam Muhammad from this constituency. The votes have also been recounted, twice, at request of Ghulam Muhammad and his supporters, to no avail.
Ayub is a graduate of the University of Karachi, having a decade of experience in politics of Yasin and Sumal. He emerged victorious against candidates like Raja Jahanzeb (Independent), Mehboob Ali (BNF) and Javed Ali (PML – N).
Jubiliant supporters of Ayub are distributing sweets and exchanging felicitations throughout the country, including Karachi and the twin cities.
