FAISALABAD, Feb 19 (APP): Senate is upper house of the country and the PTI wants to complete its elections dignifiedly in a transparent manner, said Federal Minister for Finance & Revenue Affairs Abdul Hafeez Shaikh.
Talking to media persons after visiting residence of MNA Raja Riaz Ahmad on Friday, he said, “Pakistan is a democratic country which requires elections for its houses.”
The entire nation is watching the process of Senate elections while each party is trying its optimum to win it.
“We left it onto parliamentarians, who are true representatives of the masses, to elect the best persons for Senate,” he added.
He said that Pakistan is rich with natural resources but its wealth was looted and plundered by the previous rulers. He said that now people have realised who can protect the national kitty, who can run the country with self-reliance, who can reduce expenditures of government affairs, who canincrease taxes on the rich and wealthy, who can resolve the miseries and grievances of the masses and who can fulfil the desires and expectations of Pakistani people.
“Therefore, we are optimistic that the people through their representatives will make the best decision during Senate elections,” he added.
