The minister said that opposition parties were opposing Senate elections through open ballot as they wanted to buy and sell votes. “In the past, these two major parties wanted elections through open ballot but now they are opposing it,” he added.
Mr Khattak alleged that all member parties of PDM were doing politics for their own interests. He said that their long march on March 26 to Islamabad would be a flop show because people believed that the alliance was formed to save corruption.
