Was offered seats in general elections, says Khadim Rizvi


Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi said that he was offered seats during the recently conducted general elections.

A video doing rounds on social media shows Rizvi making the claim.

“A number of people came to me before the elections,” he says.


“They asked me ‘how many seats do you want?’ but I declined the offer.”

“They asked me to pinpoint the seats I wanted, I responded I do not need the seats.”

The General Elections were held on July 25 this year with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) emerging victorious. The TLP failed to win any National Assembly seats but succeeded in winning two provincial assembly seats from Karachi.
