LAHORE: Former PTI Punjab president Ejaz Chaudhry and the party Women’s Wing Punjab president have reprimanded Defence Minister Khwaja Asif for his insulting remarks against PTI’s Shireen Mazari and demanded that he should apologize publicly.

Mr Chaudhry chided Khwaja Asif, saying the minister should not have spoken insulting remarks against the PTI leader on the floor of the house.

He said almost all PML-N ministers and leaders needed to learn respecting women and added that no hue and cry would save Khwaja Asif from being de-seated from the assembly.

He said the nation was suffering due to incapability of Khwaja Asif in reducing loadshedding in the country as he also could not ensure power supply during sehr and iftar timings.

He said the Punjab government had also failed in controlling prices in Ramazan bazaars.

Ms Bukhari asked Mariam Nawaz to establish a cell for moral training of federal and provincial ministers. She regretted that the ministers had never shown respect to women.

SARWAR: PTI leader Chaudhry Sarwar has demanded judicial inquiry into the Recosine medicine case and demanded registration of an FIR on behalf of victims against the government.

He said the law of the jungle was prevailing in the province in the absence of the accountability system.

YASMIN: PTI leaders Dr Yasmin Rashid and Waleed Iqbal have said that the youth is a precious asset of the party.

They said the PTI had given maximum tickets to youth leaders with a mindset that the country should get fresh blood in the shape of well-educated leaders of the youth.

Speaking at a workers convention organised by the youth wing of PP-139, Dr Yasmin said the PTI had given maximum party tickets to young leaders in the local government elections.

She said the PTI was fighting against opportunist politicians and the outdated system.

Later, PTI Youth Wing’s Lahore president Usman Hamza along with Dr Yasmin and Waleed Iqbal presented notifications to different youth leaders with regard to their assignments.
