PTI legislator Nusrat Wahid claims she was paid Rs160 million to back the opposition’s no-confidence vote against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
PPP approached MNA Nusrat to solicit her support for the no-trust motion and offered her a senate seat.
“I find it difficult to reject so many… “But illegal money not only sullies faces, it wrecks generations,” she says. The female MNA did not name those who offered her the bribe.
Before the vote on the no-confidence motion, nearly two dozen unhappy PTI MNAs came out in the open on Thursday.
Several of them gave interviews to different anchorpersons at the Sindh House in the federal capital, claiming they had left the ruling party and would not run for office on a PTI ticket.
One of them rubbed it in further by claiming three federal ministers had already left the PTI.
In an interview with a private TV channel, PTI dissident Raja Riaz revealed that roughly 24 disgruntled ruling party MNAs were residing at the Sindh House, fearing reprisals from the government, as they had seen when Islamabad police stormed the Parliament Lodges a week ago.
