Election campaign by various party's candidates is gaining full momentum and the whole NA-55 area is decorated with gigantic banners, hoardings and stickers of contesting candidates.
After attack on Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad of Awami Muslim League, now the story has got a new turn and Sheikh Rasheed supporters and PML-N supporters are in a direct clash both on media and on the ground. Sheikh Rasheed is suspecting on Punjab Government and Local PML-N leadership and accuses PML-N government of not providing enough security to him. On the other hand, PML-N denies any such thing and states that Sheikh Rasheed is trying to play politics over the dead bodies and trying to score some points to save his drowning boat in NA-55.
Shakeel Awan of PML-N is also campaigning very aggressively and targeting Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad by narrating his past deeds and his support for General Musharraf at the time of Lal Masjid Operation.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Candidate Ijaz Khan Jazi is also campaigning slowly but steadily and getting a good support from Pindi people especially educated youth of the constituency. He is also claiming to bag a good number of PPP votes as well. Ijaz Khan Jazi states that NA-55 election will be the start of a great peaceful revolution led by Imran Khan which will end the political drama of hypocrite politicians.
Dr Kamal of Jamat-e-Islami seems to be at number Four in this race and Jamat-e-Islami hasn't shown its power in the constituency so far. Corner meetings of Dr kamal are also showing less interest of people towards JI.
A young independent candidate Barrister Danish Iftikhar is also dreaming to be in the parliment and claims to bring an educational revolution in the country. He is not currently backed by any political party.
If we make a detailed analysis of current situation, we can see that Main contest is between Shakeel Awan, Ijaz Khan Jazi and Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad. Sheikh Rasheed has got suapport of JUI-F and some other religious parties as well while Shakeel Awan expects a support from PPP voters in accordance with "Democracy Pact". However it's expected that a large number of PTI votes will be polled in favor of Ijaz Khan Jazi.
