Fawad Chaudhry, the Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, said on Thursday that the government is planning a “big action” at the Sindh House in Islamabad after receiving reports of horse-trading and 12 disgruntled PTI MNAs in the “safe custody” of the Opposition.
Fawad Chaudhry, speaking to journalists, said Sindh House has become the centre of horse-trading ahead of the vote on the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan. He claimed that they had received information that a large sum of money had been transferred to the house.
The minister, referring to the Sindh House, stated that such markets are illegal. “I don’t know about the raid,” he said when asked if he would raid the Sindh House. “But strict action will be taken.”
A journalist inquired, “Are you looking for 12 people?” He responded that they were aware of the 12 individuals.
PM Imran Khan had ordered civilian intelligence agencies to monitor lawmakers earlier in the day, according to well-placed sources, ahead of the no-trust motion against him.
According to sources familiar with the situation, the development occurred during a meeting of the ruling PTI’s political committee in Islamabad, which was chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The spy agencies have been ordered to track the lawmakers’ whereabouts, movements, and phone calls.
After reports surfaced that around 12 disgruntled MNAs of the ruling PTI are in the “safe custody” of the Opposition, the prime minister ordered strict monitoring of the Sindh House.
The intelligence agencies have been ordered to submit a daily report to the Prime Minister.
