رشوت لینے والے تو پکڑے گئے، اب میڈیا سے درخواست ہے تھوڑی سی تحقیق کریں کے 2018 میں ان ووٹوں سے کون سینیٹر بنا؟ کیا ان دو سینیٹرز کو ایوان میں رہنے کا حق ہے؟ الیکشن کمیشن بھی اپنی ذمہ داری پوری کرے اور آرٹیکل 63 کے تحت کاروائ عمل میں لائے

It is pertinent here to mention that a video of horse-trading during the Senate elections in 2018 by some provincial lawmakers emerged on Tuesday. The lawmakers can be seen counting bundles of notes and putting them inside a bag.
The Prime Minister later in the day reacted to a leaked video showing PTI lawmakers allegedly selling their votes in exchange for money handed out by a former MPA of the PPP, saying that his government was determined to “stop the cycle of money laundering and corruption”.
Taking to Twitter, the premier wrote, “The videos showing the shameful way in which politicians buy & sell votes in Senate reflects the total destruction of the nation’s morality by successive ruling elites as they drowned the nation in debt. Cycle of corruption & money laundering is a sordid tale of our pol elite.”
