Hasil Bizenjo, the National Party president and the candidate for Senate chairman slot, on Thursday accused the country’s premier spy agency of hijacking the Senate polls by indulging in horse-trading.
The statement of the senior politician comes two days after he claimed in a TV show that money can’t be used to buy senators off in the run-up to the election for the post of the Senate chairman.

Responding to a question, Bizenjo had said that he had no idea if the government was offering money to the opposition senators in return for a vote to Sadiq Sanjrani.
Talking to a TV channel after the motion was defeated, the NP president alleged that a whopping Rs2 billion had been spent to help Sanjrani remain as the Senate chairman.
