ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan Monday said the so-called champions of democracy have tried to use parliament as a shield and made mockery of the democracy by confining the speaker of the National Assembly in his chamber.
Addressing a press conference at Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), flanked by Chairman PEMRA Saleem Baig and its Executive Member Ashfak Jumani, Awan said that PML-N's Khawaja Asif, who was wanted by National Accountability Bureau (NAB), was commenting on the performance of the ministers.
Terming him as Iqama Asif, she advised him to go to NAB, and give explanation for lifestyle-beyond-income allegations.
Awan stated that “Railu Katey” from politics were trying to survive on borrowed oxygen cylinders as they had gone to Raiwind for borrowing them.
The PM's aide made it clear that despite all pressure, Prime Minister Imran Khan would never budge from his principled stance and would never open a back door for providing them any relief.
Awan lamented that the opposition, which had no reason to justify their view point, start making personal attacks on the prime minister who was an honest person and even opposition could not accuse him of corruption.
