It was a perfect timing for Prime Minister Imran Khan and PTI to take out the video of its lawmakers receiving money to sell their votes in last Senate polls.
Interestingly PM Khan ordered Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Law Minister Sultan Khan to tender his resignation despite knowing well that he was involved in selling of votes in 2018 Senate polls. Despite this Khan made him law minister KP.
WHAT A BIG DOUBLE STANDARDS? Isn’t it.
How come suddenly Khan knows that his KP governemt law minister is a down right corrupt and vote seller.
Poor Khan comes to know everything from media or social media be it depreciation of rupee of sugar scandal and the latest video scandal is no exception as well.
The video showed some parliamentarians sitting before and counting stacks of cash reportedly before the Senate elections in 2018.
In his resignation letter, Sultan innocently said he felt “it was his moral duty and obligation to withdraw from the cabinet and offer my resignation”.

He also expressed the hope that “justice will be done” and that he would be able to clear his name.
“We will, as per vision of PM, uphold highest standards of accountability & transparency in this province,” the chief minister earlier wrote on Twitter.
Prime Minister Imran Khan after learning the scandal through media rushed to tweet about the contents of the video, saying “We are determined to stop this cycle of corruption & money laundering that is debilitating the nation.”
The desperation of Khan and his friends in the establishment can be seen with this latest video scandal of the PTI lawmakers in the face possible selling of Senate votes.
PTI shouldn’t be worried as long as establishment is with it. PAK DESTINY
