Khawaja Asif Blasting on Imran Khan and PTI
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), which staged comeback in the lower house of parliament after 224 days, faced an awkward situation in the National Assembly on Monday when MQM and JUI-F lawmakers termed PTI legislators as ‘strangers’ in the House, stirring debate among the parliamentarians.
As MQM legislator Farooq Sattar winded up his brief speech on intervention of the Speaker, Defence Minister Khwaja Muhammad Asif rose to his seat and first moaned without directly naming PTI members that ‘it was still said outside the parliament that this House is bogus.”
The House, during a joint sitting of Parliament to discuss Yemen situation, was echoed with ‘Go Imran Go’ chants by the PML-N legislators.
The minister then urged the Speaker Ayaz Sadiq to seek opinion of each PTI lawmaker one by one whether they have resigned or they are member of the House.
