Addressing a press conference with other party leaders, she said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) scored 10 seats through rigging and asked that what happened in last six months that a party which had no candidate for the election few months ago now managed to win such a number of seats.
She said that PPP rejects election results because of rigging. Reacting to ban by federal government on rallies, the PPP leader said that authorities cannot stop opposition from holding rallies by instilling fear of novel coronavirus. We will hold rallies with due implementation of COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), she added.
