PTI MNA Blames N For Giving Money To FATA Members

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf lawmaker Eng Hamid ul Haq on Saturday alleged the PML-N government for purchasing the FATA votes and giving each lawmaker around Rs 320 million for his vote.
Talking to media outside the parliament, the MNA said that the six FATA members had already made a group and Hilal Ur Rehman, Hidayat Ullah, Mirza Afridi and Shamim Afridi would be elected on four seats of FATA.
“All matters were finalized by yesterday’s evening and each of the six lawmakers were given around Rs 320 million,” he alleged.
Polling for the Senate elections went under way at 9am across the four provincial assemblies and National Assembly and is expected to conclude without a break at 4pm today.
Candidates are contesting for 52 Senate seats from the provinces, Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and the federal capital.
