Murad Saeed asks opposition why it is afraid of accountability
ISLAMABAD: Minister for Communications Murad Saeed said on Friday that whenever accountability is mentioned the opposition gets affronted and walks out of the sessions.
The minister was addressing a National Assembly session, where he asked the opposition why it is afraid of accountability.
“They don’t want justice they want Justice Qayyum, they don’t want ehtesab (accountability) they want ehtesab-ur-Rehman,” remarked Saeed amid ruckus from the opposition benches.
He said that he should be expelled from the House if he has uttered an unparliamentary word.
The opposition after raising commotion over the minister’s speech, walked out of the session in protest.
Earlier in the day, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Khawaja Saad Rafique addressed the floor of the National Assembly, in his first appearance at the Parliament since his arrest by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in connection to a housing society scam earlier this month.
