New Delhi: During any elections in Pakistan, we generally see the power-holders talk about India in a negative tone. In fact, this strategy has helped them to win elections.

But no one can deny the fact that Pakistan loves Bollywood stars and the business of Hindi films is the proof of that. Recently cricketer Imran Khan, who is the head of Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had accused India by saying that it has tried to weaken the power of Pakistan, though one of the candidates from his party put up the images of Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit Nene for seeking votes.

Pakistan and the possibility of witnessing the most absurd or surprising tactics used by election candidates is too high. Well, Pakistan has had bizarre campaigns in the past, and things are pretty much the same this election season as well.

One thing which is common during any elections in Pakistan is that the power-holders talk about India in a negative tone. In fact, this strategy has helped the candidates to win elections.

The unique poster has gone viral on the Internet, unleashing rumours that the flamboyant Pakistani politician has roped in Bollywood superstars for the 25 July election campaign.

A total of 11,855 candidates had contested the elections for 849 seats. These seats included 272 seats of the national assembly or the lower house and 577 seats of provincial assemblies.

According to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), 3,459 candidates were contesting for 272 general seats of the National Assembly, while 8,396 candidates were running for 577 general seats of the four provincial assemblies — Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. There were 105.96 million registered voters in the country.
