Nasir Shah refutes Taimur Talpur‘s claim of horse-trading

Senior Sindh minister Nasir Hussain Shah on Saturday has refuted Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Taimur Talpur‘s claim of horse-trading during Senate polls.
In a statement, Nasir said that one party received more votes during Senate elections due to rift in other parties.
Earlier, Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had summoned Taimur Talpur on October 4.
On Thursday, in a startling revelation, PPP lawmaker Taimur Talpur had confessed to horse-trading in the Senate elections in the huddle of the Sindh Assembly.
Taimur said, “Senate polls witnessed horse-trading. The member who sold his vote to Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) was also sitting in the House”.
“We made a commitment that we won t ever discuss this,” said Nawab Muhammad Taimur Talpur in the Sindh Assembly.
A ruckus erupted in Sindh Assembly soon after Talpur’s remarks as opposition’s lawmakers—who were left flabbergasted by the unforeseen disclosure staged protest and urged Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Saqib Nisar to take suo motu notice and initiate a thorough probe into the matter.
Nawaz-led PML-N had accused PTI of selling their votes to PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari while terming PPP and PTI two sides of the same coin.
