Opposition uproar in NA as Reham Khan's 'helicopter use' becomes topic of discussion
ISLAMABAD: Opposition staged a walk out from the National Assembly session on Thursday as Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz MNA took a jab at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan’s wife, Reham Khan.
“Reham Khan uses helicopters like an auto rickshaw,” PML-N MNA Talal Chaudhry said on the floor of the assembly, instantly causing an uproar in Parliament.
As PTI started walking out, Pakhtunkhawa Mili Awami Party chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai urged members not take up issues of family on the floor of the House.
Further irking PTI leaders, Chaudhry asked NA speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq to leave the chair if he thought he is ‘party in the NA-122 issue.’ On this, Sadiq left the chair with Deputy Speaker Murtaza Abbasi presiding over the session.
Regarding reports that the Pakistan Peoples Party wants to bring party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in Parliament in place of Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah, Chaudhry said, “PML-N will welcome PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto in Parliament.”
“But we will feel sorry for Khursheed Shah,” he added.
While the Jamaat-e-Islami, PTI and PPP staged a walkout over the PML-N MNAs remarks, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) also staged a walk-out to protest Defence Minister Khawaja Asif’s statements.
