ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman claims bribe offers of becoming Chairman Senate.
He said on Thursday that he was bribed by various offers including the post of Senate chairman. Fazl claimed that he was told 'to leave his seat' and he could return to the parliament as an elected member from Dera Ismail Khan.
"You don't know what offers they made me," he said, referring to the government. "I was told to leave my seat [at the dharna] and I could get re-elected to the assembly from Dera Ismail Khan," he claimed.
Fazl said that he was offered to become the governor of Balochistan or form his government in the province.
"I was also offered the post of Senate chairman," he claimed. "I thought all the offers being made to me were belittling."
