The leaders said that the party contested the election with proper preparation but the results did come out on the expected lines.
Nadda has sent a message to party leaders and workers through the general secretaries that there is no need to feel disappointed over the election result.
The party has also thanked its workers for supporting them in the elections and said that there is no need to be discouraged for not getting favourable results.
