PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) launched its election campaign yesterday with a violation of law and election code of conduct by putting up hoardings much larger than legally permitted in different parts of the provincial capital of Peshawar.
While other major political parties have been flagrantly violating the code by displaying huge billboards on major roads, the PTI proved to be no different despite its slogan of change.
Party chief Imran Khan had engagements in Peshawar for two consecutive days, with supporters, mainly aspirants for party ticket, put up hoardings on major roads through which he was scheduled to travel, to catch his attention.
Khan laid the foundation stone of Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital in Hayatabad Township on Saturday and his supporters had put up big hoardings on the University Road, the route leading to the venue.
Most hoardings on that road are displayed by activists who hope to get the party ticket for provincial assembly constituency of PK-5. Internews
