Bol which announced handing over three jets, as well as scores of expensive cars, was accused of favouritism and handpicking as it gave first Mercedes to one of the winners on Sunday.

However, responding to the story by Daily Pakistan, spokesperson for BOL tv rubbished the allegations spreading on the web, saying that there is no conspiracy behind it. “We cannot stop anyone from answering or playing. There are thousands of employees of Bol. Even if someone is someone’s relative or friend we can’t do anything. Game show is for everyone, for Pakistan!” She said

In a Facebook post that, Syed Talha Ahmed Hashmi claimed that Jawad’s brother Daniyal was an employee of the ‘Bol’ channel.

The person also added that it was highly likely that Jawad himself was a fresh employee of Bol as he had links with other staffers of Bol’s parent firm ‘Axact’.

Hashmi posted pictures from Jawad’s Facebook account and claimed that it was a ‘drama’ staged by ‘Game Show Aisay Chalay Ga’ management to win ratings. Though there was no concrete evidence to substantiate the claims.

Not only that the televangelist Aamir Liaquat also announced 30 houses, 60 cars, hundreds of kilogrammes of gold, and other cash prizes for winners.
