Fawad Chaudhry submits privilege motion against Khawaja Asif in NA

Islamabad (Web Desk): Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Saturday submitted a privilege motion against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Muhammad Asif.


The motion has been filed against Asif for misrepresenting comments made by the government regarding former premier Nawaz Sharif’s health.

According to the minister, the PML-N leader misquoted the government in the National Assembly saying, “Let Nawaz Sharif die”.

On Thursday, Asif said an indemnity bond to the tune of Rs7-7.5 billion was nothing but the government must not go blind with its politics of revenge and should allow Nawaz Sharif to go abroad for treatment.

Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly, Asif warned the government once again that if anything happened to the PML-N supremo, Islamabad would be held responsible.
