Lahore- Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shahbaz today criticized Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), for wanting to contest the upcoming Senate elections despite considering parliament a “no-go zone”.

Speaking to reporters after a visit to a children’s hospital in Lahore, the MNA said he fails to understand PTI Chairman Imran Khan's temperament.

Hamza said Imran tends to change his statement regarding Senate elections in spite of boycotting assemblies and is gearing up for Upper House elections.

The PTI leadership on Saturday announced that it will contest elections for the Senate. It has also that the party will contest only from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and will boycott from the rest of the three provincial and national assemblies.

Following the official announcement, the PTI is finally going to become part of the same parliament that Mr Khan protested against and derided for the 126 days of his sit-in outside Parliament House.

The PTI hopes to win five to six Senate seats from the KP.
