PTI submits resolution in Punjab Assembly to suspend Mashhood as MPA

October 4, 2018

LAHORE:  A resolution demanding to  suspend Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Mashhood as member of provincial assembly (MPA), over his controversial statement was submitted in Punjab Assembly on Thursday.

The resolution was presented by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) during a session.

Earlier, Rana Mashhood had claimed that PML-N has sorted out matters with establishment. He said, “I’m not talking about any deal. Establishment has always accepted Shehbaz Sharif”.

“Matters aren’t going as planned. If things continue to run in the same fashion, then PML-N will form govt in Punjab in the next two months”, stated Mashhood.

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Major General Asif Ghafoor had termed statement issued by PML-N leader Rana Mashhood ‘baseless and regrettable’.

ISPR DG issued statement on popular micro-blogging website Twitter.

He said. “Attribution of an obvious vested statement by Rana Mashhood is baseless and regrettable. Such irresponsible expressions are detrimental to stability in the country”.

The PML-N had clarified his stance, saying that his statement was taken out of context and that he has always raised voice against corrupt officials.

Rana Mashood further stated that I haven’t specifically mentioned Pak Army anywhere in the whole interview and so it is being misinterpreted. INP
