Parties doling out billions to attract voters on media
By Iram Salim
Islamabad, May 3 (www.pakdestiny.com) There has been intense competition among the PPP, PML-N and PTI over spending extravagantly on election advertisement campaign.
So far the PPP is leading the other two in this regard while the PMLN and PTI appear to be in close contest.
The private news channels and newspapers are making billions from these parties. The three parties are levelling allegations on each other for spending Rs3 to Rs6 billions for ad campaign.
Where is the Election Commission of Pakistan which non-realistically issued a limit of small money to spend on election campaign.
Interesting the ECP is blind to the planes and copters chartered by the leaders of different parties for the campaign. The ECP used to vent out its ghusa (anger) on small candidates. – Pak Destiny
