Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MPA Hina Pervaiz Butt on Saturday submitted a resolution in the Punjab Assembly (PA), asking Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur to apologize and resign over his ‘objectionable remarks’ against PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz.
According to a private TV channel, the resolution says that the words used by the federal minister against Maryam Nawaz were simply intolerable.
“After the character assassination of political opponents, jailing them on one pretext or the other, now the PTI government ministers have stooped down so low that they are getting personal in their speeches. Gandapur’s statement is creating resentment in the PML-N’s youth.
Therefore, not only the minister should offer his apology to PML-N vice president but Prime Minister Imran Khan should also remove him from his post immediately,” reads the resolution.
In his speech at an election rally in AJK on Friday, Federal Minister Ali Amin Gandapur had come down hard on Maryam Nawaz, saying, “Your grandfather did not have iron equal to gold which you have worn on the wedding of your daughter.” He said, “You got plastic surgery at the cost of Rs80 million by spending people’s money.”
