‘Most qualified and learned’ PPP MNA says: Geo is working on agenda to destabilise Pakistan
ISLAMABAD: “Geo is working on agenda to destabilise Pakistan,” alleged the so-called ‘highly qualified and learned’ PPP legislator, Jamshed Dasti, in the National Assembly on Monday.
Dasti, it may be recalled, was recently disqualified by the Supreme Court for contesting the 2008 elections on a fake graduation degree but was again allowed by the PPP Co-Chairperson and President Asif Ali Zardari to contest the elections and was thus re-elected.
On Monday, he vent his anger at the news channel and particularly targeted its anchorperson Kamran Khan. Geo News had played an active role in exposing this so-called learned legislator of the PPP who had contested the elections on a fake degree.
Jamshed Dasti said anchorpersons were staging anti-legislators’ programmes and were directly attacking even the person of the prime minister. He appreciated the late founder of Jang Group Mir Khalil-ur-Rahman and said hewas one of the icons of journalism in the country. But now some of the journalists are doing yellow journalism, he added.
Another PPP legislator Sher Muhammad Baloch described renowned anchorperson of Geo Kamran Khan and another anchorperson as “enemies of democracy and the State”. He said the Geo anchorperson wanted to run the state of Pakistan like “parchoon ki dukan” (grocery shop).
He appealed to the Supreme Court to take action against them for allegedly acting against the state as they were “destabilising Pakistan”. He also asked Speaker National Assembly Dr Fehmida Mirza to allow him to bring a motion in the house against these anchorpersons.
Sher Muhammad Baloch ruled out mid-term elections saying the country’s situation did not allow it. He appreciated the role of Mian Nawaz Sharif and termed him one of the leaders of the country.
