ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister on Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz, while reacting to the opposition’s anti-government demonstration at Gujranwala on Friday, remarked that the opposition had staged a “flop show with empty chairs” that failed to display unity and solidarity.
Speaking to media, flanked by Minister on Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry, the information minister said that it is reprehensible how the opposition leaders were speaking about the country’s respected national institutions.
“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 added.
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.
