PTI in strong position to exploit weaknesses of opponents in NA-248

In the midst of the vulnerability winning in the race for Karachi’s National Assembly electorate NA-248 (West-I), just the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) appears to have the high ground.

Since 1988 the constituents of the then NA-239 have chosen the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) to speak to them thrice, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) twice and the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) once each, while the PTI developed as another major political power here after it completed sprinter up in the past general races.

Other than the Manora Cantonment, no less than 11 association advisory groups and four association boards of the city’s biggest area, to be specific District West, fall in this electorate.

In the 2015 neighborhood government decisions, the PML-N led the pack with 15 general councilors, the PTI came in second with nine and the PPP anchored extensive seats just in the rustic belt, where the angling networks live.
