ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Ali Haider Gillani on Tuesday declared the video showing his meeting with PTI lawmakers ahead of Senate polls 2021 as real.

While addressing a press conference along with PPP MNA Shazia Marri, the PPP leader Haider Gillani said that he met with PTI lawmakers last week to discuss things related to Senate polls. "The lawmakers are my friends and I did nothing wrong by meeting them," he added.

“I met with PTI MNAs and told them how to waste their votes. The MNAs from PTI are also my friends and I did nothing wrong,” he told the journalists, adding that he will meet them again on their wish.

Ali Musa Gillani said that he had only told lawmakers how to waste Senate vote, adding that no matters related to selling of the Senate vote were discussed during the meeting.

He further said several PTI lawmakers are angry with their party leadership over the award of Senate tickets and some of the PTI MPAs from Sindh have shown their reservations also.

“I only asked them to vote for Senate candidate from Islamabad Yousuf Raza Gillani after they expressed their reservations over PTI candidate Hafeez Sheikh,” he added.

 Ahead of Senate elections, a video of Ali Haider Gillani, son of former premier and PDM's Senate candidate Yousuf Raza Gillani has surfaced which exposed the PPP leader 'buying vote' for upcoming Senate polls.

The leaked video shows a PPP leader asking the ruling PTI MNA to sell his vote. Ali Haider Gillani was also telling the PTI lawmaker how to waste his Senate vote. The video of Ali Haider Gillani was recorded a week back.

There will be a one-to-one contest between Finance Minister Hafeez Sheikh and former prime minister Yusuf Raza Gilani for a general seat.
