While reacting to the Opposition’s Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Jalsa in Gujranwala, Federal Mister on Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz remarked that the opposition had staged a “flop show with empty chairs”.
Shibli Faraz further added that the Opposition’s PDM Jalsa failed to display unity and solidarity.
Speaking to media officials, he further added, “Opposition leaders have used such derogatory language, especially Bilawal Bhutto and Khawaja Asif. Bilawal Bhutto this wasn’t expected from you [especially when your] mother [Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto] was a respected female politician of the country. With your address [yesterday] you showed how much you respect women.”
The minister went on to add that the Jamiat Ulema e Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader was again “sidelined” and “deceived” when he was made to address empty chairs at 2:00 am.
On the other hand, Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had already predicted in November 2011, that all parties being held accountable for corruption in the country will united once an action is taken against them.
“It is quite sad that despite spending millions, the opposition was only able to gather a handful of people at the jalsa yesterday,” he said.
He also taunted former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif by saying “the PML-N supremo is acting like an ‘upset lover'”.
“The way he [Nawaz Sharif] is complaining about the Pakistan Army, seems like he has forgotten the time when the army had pampered him during the 1980s”, Fawad said.
He suggested that opposition parties should cancel their next PDM demonstrations “given the poor participation from the public”.
