Show: Off The Cuff
Host: Afia Salam
Topic: Politics of money
Description: So what does it cost to get a seat in the Senate? Or is that a wrong question, or maybe an incomplete question. The question should be rephrased as, how much is a seat in the Senate worth?
Or, what will it cost the people, the awam of Pakistan to see their Senators get into the corridors of power? The amounts being quoted, along with the hullabaloo about ‘seat adjustments’ and betrayals make a mockery of the entire process.
Can you trust your destiny to be in the hands of people who buy and sell themselves for the sake of power?
