Karachi. 9.6.2016: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MNAs Shagufta Jumani and Surayya Jatoi have condemned federal minister for water and power and defence Khawaja Asif for his derogatory remarks against PTI lady lawmaker Shireen Mazari. The minister has called her a tractor trolley.
The remarks are a candid manifest of dictatorial mindset that is in blood of the parliamentarians belonging to the PMLN especially Khawaja Asif, who is fond of passing such insulting remarks as routine. This typical mindset only comes from long standing companionship of the dictators. This insulting attitude of a sitting minister is in absolute contrast to the universal democratic norms and values.
In a statement issued from PPP Media Cell Sindh, the PPP MNAs said that the federal minister had deliberately insulted a lady lawmaker because he, on dictation of his bosses, wanted to divert the nation’s attention from the hot Panama Papers leaks and huge scale power outages in Sindh on which the minister is under severe criticism.
They said it has now been proven that Khawaja Asif is more a defender of his boss the Prime Minister on Panama Papers leaks and the IMF than the minister for defense of Pakistan.
They demanded the national assembly Speaker that Khawaja Asif’s national assembly membership should immediately be suspended.
