PPP rejects Imran's remarks about parliament

Meeting Trump would be a'bitter pill: Imran

At this point, PTI MNA Sheheryar Afridi stood up and launched a verbal attack on Deputy Speaker Javed Murtaza Abbasi, calling him "laanti" (accursed) for not allowing him to speak on a point of order.

The rumpus began after the day's business had been concluded and the deputy speaker adjourned the session until Monday evening.

Imran Khan and Sheik Rasheed had publicly cursed the parliament, on 17th January at a joint rally of PTI, PPP and PAT, for voting in support of the "corrupt" Sharifs.

"Lakh laanat (a hundred thousand curses)", said Mr Afridi, adding: "Parliament is not anybody's personal legacy".

Repeated attempts by the PTI lawmakers to talk about the issue were denied by the deputy speaker.

"This House has never seen such shameful conduct", he added.

Meanwhile, the house also discussed the growing incidents of child abuse and murders in the country, especially after the issue created a public uproar after the rape and murder of a minor girl in Kasur district of Punjab.

It was also expected that the treasury benches would move a privilege motion against Imran Khan and Sheikh Rashid, but this did not happen.

Talking to reporters outside the parliament house, Murad said that any parliament that enacts a certain law to provide legal cover to a criminal was not worthy of any praise.

Should he become Pakistan's prime minister, Khan said "yes we would talk", referring to Trump, but added that the USA dishonours the memory of thousands of Pakistan's soldiers who died battling insurgents in its tribal regions, as well as that of tens of thousands of Pakistanis who died in terrorist attacks.

"We take the oath and violate it ourselves. I can guarantee most will condemn it", Khan said in his tweet. He said that the PPP has always tried to strengthen as well as give respect to the parliament and will is determined to do it in future too.
