ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda ridiculed the Pakistan Muslim League-N and Pakistan Peoples Party using an army boot in live TV show.
Talking about consent of the former ruling parties for passage of the services chiefs amendment bills in the parliament, Faisal Vawda said they had made a turnaround in their political opinion against the national institution to safeguard their personal interest and in a bid to save their skin from corruption cases.
“The way you have given respect to the boot by laying down and smooching it has exposed you to the nation,” he said.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader also expressed suspicion on illness of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who has been granted bail to get treatment from London. “I have been saying it from the day one that Nawaz Sharif’s ailment is nothing but a drama,” he said.
PML-N leader Javed Abbasi and PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira, who were sharing the panel of representatives of leading political parties, walked out of the show expressing their abomination against statements of the federal minister.
Exhibiting a completely immature behaviour, the federal minister for water resources placed a boot on the desk in front of him saying that he would take it (boot) everywhere to roast the PML-N and PPP.
The host Kashif Abbasi reminded him that there was no reason for bashing them as his party had been requesting them to do not put hurdle in passage of the bills in the best national interest.
Kashif Abbasi banteringly asked why the boot was brightly shining. To which, Vawda said it was polished with their (pointing towards the other party leaders sitting with him) tongues.
On this occasion, Qamar Zaman Kaira got furious and warned that he would leave the show if he kept using the foul language. He said the PTI leader was smearing nobody but army through giving the hint that army was pressurising political parties for making decisions.
