ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to expel after issuing show-cause notices to 20 of its lawmakers for ‘selling their loyalties’ in the Senate elections.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan has announced this while addressing a press conference on Wednesday.
During the press conference Imran Khan made it clear that the names of those who “sold their loyalties in the Senate elections” will be provided to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). I felicitate the party members who didn’t sell their loyalties in the elections,” he added.
PTI chief said that the party will give the members a chance to explain before sending their names to NAB.
Responding a question, he stated that nobody took any action on the buying and selling of votes during the Senate election. The names of the PTI lawmakers who are suspected of selling their votes by the party leadership include Deena Naaz, Nargis Ali, Nagina Khan, Sardar Idrees, Obaid Mayar, Zahid Durrani, Fouzia Bibi, Naseem Hayat, Qurban Khan, Arif Yousaf, among others.
A charge sheet will be issued to the lawmakers to seek an explanation of their actions, Imran said, adding that their names will also be sent to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). “The investigation committee will give proofs to NAB on how these lawmakers were bribed,” the PTI chief said, challenging other parties to oust their corrupt members.
