Bizenjo claims spy agency hijacked Senate vote: DG ISPR Refutes


Shafaqna Pakistan: Hasil Bizenjo, the National Party president and the candidate for Senate chairman slot, on Thursday accused the country’s premier spy agency of hijacking the Senate polls by indulging in horse-trading.

The statement of the senior politician comes two days after he claimed in a TV show that money can’t be used to buy senators off in the run-up to the election for the post of the Senate chairman.

Responding to a question, Bizenjo had said that he had no idea if the government was offering money to the opposition senators in return for a vote to Sadiq Sanjrani.

Meanwhile DG ISPR said that  Mir Hasil Bizenjo’s remarks about the head of a national institution are baseless

Remarks by Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo implicating head of national premier institution are unfounded,” said army’s spokesman in a tweet in Friday’s wee hours. “The tendency to bring entire democratic process into disrepute for petty political gains doesn’t serve democracy.”
