The voter added that people are shaming him in his constituency and that he should have resigned first before joining the opposition. His harsh words left Raja Riaz speechless who could not defend himself.
Meanwhile, Ali Zaidi wrote a few couplets in the Urdu language which implied that this is the first of many such revelations against the PTI members who have sided with the opposition to make the no-confidence motion against PM Imran Khan successful.
PTI’s other dissident MNA, Ramesh Kumar, claims that 33 MNAs have joined the opposition from the ruling party. Ali Haider Zaidi says that nearly 400 officials from Sindh Police have been deployed at Sindh House ith ‘ulterior motives to sabotage the political system in the country’, terming them the ‘Zardari mafia’s private army’.
The alleged leaked audio clip had triggered another online debate. Many are slamming Raja Riaz for compromising the trust of his voter others believe the audio clip should not have been shared.
