PESHAWAR: Former PTI lawmaker Ubaid Ullah Mayar has confessed to accepting  bribe value Rs10 million in 2018  and alleged that the then chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak requested him to take action.

The confession got here after a controversial video surfaced on social media wherein some PTI lawmakers may very well be seen allegedly accepting bribe previous to the Senate elections of 2018.

According to a report by Geo.television, the PTI-led provincial authorities had “paid Rs10 million to all MPAs for developmental work.”

He mentioned that  he accepted the cash on the National Assembly speaker’s home and it was the “provincial government which paid money to the MPAs and then made a video.” He went on to say that he was “not aware of being filmed at the time of receiving the money.”

“At that time, Pervez Khattak had formed a committee of 17 MPAs and asked us to vote for them, paid us the money, and promised to give us party’s tickets,” he alleged, per the report.

He mentioned that he even went to the High Court in relation to the matter, including that he “stands by [his] statement and is “not afraid of anybody.”

“I do know the truth of Pervez Khattak in addition to National Assembly’s Speaker Asad Qaiser,” he said. “These two made the video, paid us, and the place proven within the video is the speaker’s home.”

Responding to a question regarding two people from another party who could be seen taking money in the video, Mayar said that the “Pervez Khattak had promised to make them ministers in the event that they joined the PTI,” adding that the “promise was later fulfilled”.

He said that he was asked to return the money on the suspicion that he did not vote for PTI’s candidate.
