PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Finance Minister Taimur Khan Jhagra claimed on Friday an opposition lawmaker made him an offer to back a no-trust motion against Chief Minister Mahmood Khan.

In a Twitter post, he said, “It didn’t take long… Received a call from an opposition legislator a few minutes ago.” He added he told the caller to “get lost, in no uncertain terms”.

The minister said he had informed the chief minister about the offer. “Some of us are NOT for sale. And neither does our “zameer” awaken whenever convenient,” he maintained.

Speaking to ARY News later, he said he didn’t want to reveal the identity of the caller for the time being. He quoted the opposition lawmaker as telling him that there was a forward bloc in the ruling PTI.

“I asked the man who contacted me to get lost. I am not the person who sells zameer (conscience),” Jhagra said, claiming that senior party leaders are being bribed to defect from the party.
