Javed Hashmi is defeated in Multan NA-149 by-election is not a news. This was already foregone conclusion that he is going to lose this election. The news is he got votes more than expected. He has accepted his defeat. I don’t think he had any other option. He said he was sick so he could not spend much time requires for the election. Now he will go to China for his treatment. If he thinks this is the reason for his defeat then he should have gone to China for treatment before the election.
He spoke to media in the evening he did not seem with stable mental condition. His talk was not related to each other. For example, government can not be displaced with containers, decision should be at the ballot box and I am going to China for my treatment etc.
I think his time is over. He should take rest and take care of his followers as mukhdoom.
This by-election is a clear indicator the old regime is crumbling. People want change and they will move towards Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Threek. It is too late for Nawaz League and Zardari Party to change the minds of people.
There will still be people who will vote for Nawaz League or Zardari Party but that will be due to personal allegiance of voters to candidates and not because of the party itself.
Wind direction has changed for good.
