(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) PPP's chief in Punjab Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo has claimed that the strategy he has prepared will see a number of defections from the PML-N before the next election.


"Let the caretaker set-up come up and you will see that happen," the newly-appointed president of the Punjab chapter of the PPP said in an interview.

"We will give you big surprises," Wattoo said when asked if any PML-N heavyweight could join the PPP. He claimed that a number of leaders, including sitting and former legislators, belonging to the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) were already in contact with him.

Wattoo was of the view that the award of party tickets to new entrants to contest the elections would not demoralise the PPP diehards because they also wanted it to win the polls.

"Wherever we will get an opportunity we will award tickets to party workers as well," he said.

He said no other party in the country had dedicated and steadfast workers like the PPP.

The PPP leader said the party's workers were now prepared to give a tough fight to their opponents in the province.

About the issue of seat adjustment with the PML-Q in Punjab, Wattoo expressed the hope that the two parties would resolve the matter amicably.

He said his party had no dispute with the PML-Q regarding most of the constituencies in Punjab and winners of the last election belonging to either party would have the first right to the seat.
