Democracy turned into a marketplace’: Mushahidullah


Staff Reporter


PML-N Senator Mushahidullah Khan, referring to the unexpected defeat of the opposition in the no-confidence vote against Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani a day earlier, on Friday said some people have turned democracy into a “marketplace”.
The opposition had been dealt a startling blow despite having the support of 64 senators when the no-confidence resolution was tabled. The final count after a secret ballot, however, had showed only 50 votes cast in favour — three short of the required 53 to oust Sanjrani.
