Indian media rejoicing at Ayaz Sadiq's statement: Shibli Faraz
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said that the Indian media is rejoicing at the statement of PML-N leader Sardar Ayaz Sadiq.
Addressing a media briefing on Thursday, he said that Ayaz Sadiq should apologize to the nation in the parliament.
He also asked the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) leadership to apologize to the nation.
Earlier expressing his views in the Senate, Federal Minister for Information Shibli Faraz said that the narrative of the opposition started from Gujranwala and reached Balochistan after desecrating the mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam.
He said that anti-Pakistan rhetoric was being spread in the Indian media.
However, the opposition protested during the speech of Shibli Faraz. The Senate deputy chairman stopped the federal minister from speaking.
Saleem Mandviwala said that the issue should be discussed after the completion of the agenda of the meeting. "I am the spokesperson of the government and should be provided a chance to speak," Shibli Faraz said.
The deputy chairman replied, "You are the spokesperson, you can speak but after the agenda, I am not stopping you to speak but let the agenda be completed."
The members had initially tried to stop Faraz from making a policy statement on CPEC. He asked for the deputy chairman's permission to speak, but the opposition members interjected and didn't let him speak.
"I want to give a policy statement under Article 265," Faraz said. The opposition members said that the Senate should discuss its set agenda first and then the floor should be given to the information minister.
