Uproar in Senate as Fawad refuses to apologise
From Our Correspondent
ISLAMABAD: The Upper House of the Parliament witnessed an uproar again yesterday following an exchange of harsh words between Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and PML-N Senator Mushahidullah Khan.
Chaos was created after Mushahidullah Khan expressed reservations over presence of Information Minister in the Senate, saying “Fawad Chaudhry should extend apology first.”
Over this, Chairman Senate asked Fawad Chaudhry to apologize.
The minister, over the demand of Mushahidullah, refused to extend apology. “Why should I apologize?”
He went on to allege that Mushahidullah got his four brothers recruited in Pakistan International Airlines. “The PML-N leaders must refute my claims or else I’m stick to it.”
Last week, Chaudhry had said the PTI government considered the national exchequer a sacred trust and it would continue to expose plunderers like Mushahidullah Khan.
He said Mushahidullah was appointed a loader in the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and became a senator due to serving his master former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. His three brothers were also inducted in the PIA on the basis of nepotism.
Overall 19 family members of Mushahidullh Khan, he said, were inducted in the PIA while over 100 others were also appointed on his recommendations.
