KARACHI - The political heirs of former bigwigs have rejected that their leaders received money from the Inter-Services Intelligence to form a political alliance in the 1990 to defeat Pakistan People’s Party in general elections.

According to the list submitted in the Supreme Court, Rs5 million were given to Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi, Rs5 million to Jam Sadiq, Rs2.5 million to Muhammad Khan Junejo and Rs2 million to the late Pir Pagara Syed Mardan Shah of Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F).

PML-F provincial general secretary Imtiaz Ahmed Shaikhtold The Nation that late Pir Pagara had denied receiving any money from the ISI.

“Pir Pagara, in his life,discredited the list which carries his name as beneficiary from the money dispensed by the ISI to form the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad”, Shaikh said, adding that his party would decide whether to challenge the list in the court or not.

Sindh Assembly member Arif Mustafa Jatoi, son of former caretaker prime minister late Ghulam Mustafa Khan Jatoi, rejected the list, saying his father never got money from the ISI.

He said his party,the National People’s Party, would decide on the matter after the issuance of detail judgement of Asghar Khan case.
