ISLAMABAD (Yes News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Friday lashed out at the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) a day after scuffle broke out between lawmakers of the opposition and ruling parties during the National Assembly session.
“What is the use of such assembly? It is better to shut such assembly and save people’s money,” Khan told reporters outside the Supreme Court.
He said what PML-N representatives put on display in the National Assembly yesterday was an absolute ‘fascist mindset’.
“What bothered them so much? That PTI as opposition questioned them to answer whether Nawaz Sharif had lied in the assembly or whether he had lied in the Supreme Court?” the PTI chairman asked.
This is our right as the opposition in a democracy and Nawaz Sharif is answerable to the public as is any prime minister or president anywhere in the world, he added.
On the other hand, PTI’s Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi said he has never seen such attitude of the government in the past.
“PTI is being targeted,” he said.
National Assembly on Thursday became a battlefield as a scuffle broke out between the opposition and government lawmakers who exchanged blows and pushed one another.
The brawl broke out when five members from the opposition parties requested Speaker Ayaz Sadiq to submit a privileged motion against the prime minister.
