NA passes resolution denouncing Imran and Sh Rashid’s insulting language
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – A resolution has been passed in the National Assembly on Thursday against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rasheed for using inappropriate language against the Parliament in yesterday’s public gathering in Lahore.
The resolution moved by Minister for Education Balighur Rehman said the two leaders who themselves are members of the parliament through their derogatory language tried to hurt the sanctity of the constitutional and sacred institution.
It said that the parliament is the representative institution of 200 million people of Pakistan. In fact by using the abusive language, the two leaders tried to insult the people of the country which is condemnable.
Speaking on the floor of the house, Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif strongly criticized the insulting language used by PTI Chairman Imran Khan against parliament.
He said that no one could be allowed to attack the supreme institution of parliament.
The minister said that the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) have given huge sacrifices for the democracy and it is our responsibility to protect the sanctity of the parliament.
In his remarks, Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Syed Khurshid Shah condemned the abusive language used against the parliament by the PTI Chairman.
He said those criticizing the parliament have no future in politics.
On Wednesday while addressing the joint opposition rally held in Lahore against the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government, Imran Khan cursed upon the Parliament which, according to him, paved the way for a disqualified person to head a party by amending the Constitution.
