Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday claimed that three Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNAs had been offered bribes to support the Opposition’s plan to remove Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan.

“Three of our MNAs including a minority and a woman member have reported that they have been offered money to give a vote in support of a no-confidence motion against PM Imran Khan,” said Fawad in a press conference after attending PTI’s Central Executive Committee’s (CEC) meeting in Islamabad.

The minister vowed that the ruling party will not allow anybody to “revive the culture of horse-trading in the country.”


The allegation from the information minister comes as the Opposition gears up to move a no-confidence motion against PM Imran.

Earlier today, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief and Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) President Maulana Fazlur Rehman visited Leader of the Opposition Shehbaz Sharif at his residence upon Sharif’s invitation for a lunch.

Sharif had invited Fazl along with Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari to the lunch, to discuss the current political situation and the no-confidence motion against the incumbent Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

It is being reported that Fazl will visit the Chaudhry brothers’ residence in Gulberg, Lahore for dinner today.
