The constituency has seen a lively election campaign, with PML-N’s Maryam Nawaz Sharif and PTI’s Imran Khan holding large rallies.
A large part of the constituency is made up of posh, high-end areas such as Gulberg and Shadman in Lahore. However, there are pockets of underdeveloped areas such as those near the Qurban Lines. These houses still lack basic services such as clean drinking water and a proper electricity and gas connection.
Several of the Qurban Lines residents told Geo.tv that they will not vote for any political party as no one comes to their area after winning the election.
