Trading elections

Sir: A news report has revealed that at least 17 Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) lawmakers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) allegedly sold their votes during the Senate election, enabling two Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) candidates to be elected to the Senate from the province where the PPP only has seven MPAs.

The report also claimed that those allegedly involved in the practice included several prominent party leaders and disgruntled party members.

It seems PTIs’ narrative is based on big lies and tall claims. It does exactly what it apparently opposes.
