Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Friday congratulated former Pakistan skipper Imran Khan for his successful innings in politics.From one skipper to another, Ganguly said: “I have no idea about politics, you ask the political leaders, however, he has been fighting for a long time so I will congratulate him on his victory.”Rated as one of the best all-rounders of all time, Imran, who led Pakistan to the 1992 World Cup victory, is all set to become Pakistan’s 19th Prime Minister after his party Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) emerged as the single-largest party in general elections.PTI, however, has fallen shot of majority. The party has won 119 seats followed by the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) with 63 seats. Bilawal Bhutto-led Pakistan Peoples Party has won 43 seats.The National Assembly in Pakistan has 342 seats in total out of which 272 are directly voted for. The halfway mark in Pakistan’s national assembly is 137 for a simple majority.It is clear that a coalition government will be formed because none of the parties meet the halfway mark.Pakistan voted to elect its new prime minister on July 25. Early trends had shown PTI leading ahead of the Shehbaz Sharif led PML (N) and the PPP. On Thursday itself, Imran Khan declared his victory in Pakistan.In his first televised speech after election results showed PTI as the single-largest party, Imran Khan brought up the issue of Kashmir and said Kashmiris have been suffering for long.Khan, calling for dialogue with India, said he wants good relations with India as a poverty-free subcontinent can be possible if both countries have “good relations and trade ties”.advertisementMeanwhile, PML (N) supporters in Punjab province’s Sargodha are chanting anti-army and anti-military slogans, claiming that the results are being tampered to please the ‘men in boots’ (read army).
