Lahore: 10-02-2021: Acting Governor Punjab Ch Parvez Elahi has said that advice to the opposition is it should contest election and also do politicking by staying in the system, better of democracy lies in; participation in the Senate election is good decision of the opposition, the opposition should make parathions for local polls after the Senate.

He said this while addressing the oath-taking of Punjab Assembly Press Gallery office- bearers at the Governors’ House here today (Wednesday).

Secretary Punjab Assembly Muhammad Khan Bhatti, Director General Parliamentary Affairs Inayatullah Lak, President Lahore Press Club Arshad Ansari and senior journalists were also present in the function.
