Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Shehryar Afridi said that any political party based on benefits and personal interests is unreliable and so is Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).

Speaking to host Jameel Farooqui in BOL News’ program National Debate, Shehryar Afridi said that PDM leaders can go to any extent for their own benefits.

Lambasting at PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz, he said that no one has the right to interfere in the legal procedure by the anti-corruption watchdog.

“Being forceful to NAB by any means and harassing the institution is totally intolerable,” added Afridi.

Questioning further about Rana Sanaullah being involved in the drugs scam, he asked, “Why is Rana Sanaullah escaping the trial if he is innocent?”

“Drugs were recovered from Rana Sanaullah’s car and we have the evidence,” said Shehryar Khan Afridi.

Commenting more about his mistake during vote casting at the Senate Elections 2021, Afridi added that he had not been instructed by the staff at the polling booth.

“I asked the staff members twice whether I have to sign the ballot paper or put any mark,” he said.

When asked what he has to say about his replacement, Shehryar Khan Afridi said, “PM Imran Khan has the power to reshuffle the cabinet.”

“I do not care if I lose the position,” he added.

Earlier, Shehryar Afridi had earned Prime Minister Imran Khan’s ire as he requested the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to let him cast his vote afresh.

“It is submitted that I have been feeling unwell for the past few days and couldn’t attend the meetings of the party for preparations of elections,” Afridi had said in a letter to the ECP.

Commenting over the entire situation, the premier said, “You are an MNA. How can you make a mistake like this?” he told Afridi.

“Everyone was informed about the voting procedure [beforehand]. You shouldn’t have made a mistake like this,” he added angrily.
