PPP for action against party MPAs for media bashing

LAHORE: Acting President PPP Punjab Sami Ullah Khan has said action must be taken against the party MPAs for media bashing in the Punjab Assembly.

Besides, he also stated the controversial resolution in the PA was tabled by PML-N while PPP Parliamentary leader Raja Riaz wasn’t in the House and it was solely the move of the PML-N.

Flanked by Deputy General Secretary Punjab Usman Salim Malik and Iqbal Sialvi, Sami Ullah Khan said the resolution tabled against the media reflected the frustration of the PML-N, which along with PML-Q (forward bloc) was the largest shareholder on the issue of fake degrees.

Sami Ullah Khan further stated it seemed that PML-N was under great stress and there might be some ‘unseen’ differences between the Sharifs, which could be felt during the recent episode against the media. He said the PA passed the resolution in the presence of one brother whereas the other brother expressed his displeasure against the mover of the controversial resolution.

To a question, he stated the resolution moved in the PA was solely the brainchild of PML-N, not Sana Ullah Mastikhel, who couldn’t draft such a resolution on his own. He added that the Speaker took the said resolution out of turn, which showed that it was due to the complete consent of the ruling party which was no other than PML-N.

Sami went on to say that the much-trumpeted stance of Nawaz Sharif’s principled politics was ridiculous and a mockery with the nation, as the PML-N had awarded tickets to persons who had not only once but twice cheated the nation, once through fake degrees and secondly by changing their platform after winning the seat.
