Yousuf Raza Gilani lured and bought the PTI members. The Prime Minister had already said that an attempt was being made to buy the members. Gilani bought rigged votes, offers tickets and concessions for the next election.
Ali Zafar argued that on March 2, a video of Ali Haider, son of candidate Yousuf Raza Gilani, appeared on the media.
After watching the video, Punjab member Altaf Ibrahim Qureshi said, “Do you know the people in the video?” To which Barrister Ali Zafar replied that he does not know the people shown in the video, Altaf Ibrahim Qureshi said that you are saying that the money was given and the recipients also confessed that the members who took the money are now with you, bribe. Barrister Ali Zafar said that the Election Commission also took notice of the appearance of the video. The Election Commission also issued a press release on taking notice. The Member Election Commission of Punjab said that a decision has been taken in a similar case today.
Barrister Ali Zafar said that the Election Commission has powers under section 9. The Punjab member said that those who were offered the money should not have become parties. To which Barrister Ali Zafar said that they are not parties, they can be witnesses, at least the affidavits of the people present in the video would be taken, the lawyer said that Ali Haider Gilani is telling the way to MNS, Ali Haider Gilani himself admitted that this video is correct.
Member Punjab Altaf Ibrahim Qureshi said that there is a lot of false news in the media. An MPA Abdul Salam was misreported. The news of Election Commission’s self-notice regarding Ali Haider Gilani’s video is wrong. The petitioners should first make the other characters of the video a party. We will decide the case according to the constitution and law. Everyone is responsible for what they have done. The name of Yousuf Raza Gilani is nowhere in the video. Characters in video and audio will be prosecuted.
If you prove that there is a transaction between the people, then action will be taken against all of them. Before that, another such request was made. They were also asked to make other people parties.
