Dr. Shahbaz Gill, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Communication, lost his cool on live television on Thursday and used profanities against PTI MNA Ramesh Kumar.
During a Dunya News interview about the country’s current political situation, Shahbaz Gill lost control of his rage and began verbally abusing MNA Ramesh Kumar, calling him a “corrupt person.”
He also used abusive language against MNA Ramesh Kumar on multiple occasions, oblivious to the fact that he was speaking on national television.
MNA Ramesh Kumar had cut ties with the PTI earlier in the day, telling Geo News that he is “no longer a part of the party.”
Prior to the no-confidence vote against the prime minister, MNA Ramesh Kumar claimed that “three federal ministers have quit the ruling PTI.” He did not, however, reveal the ministers’ names.
During his appearance on the show, Gill yelled at MNA Ramesh Kumar, calling him a “sell-out.” In Punjab, he was also accused of selling fake cancer medicines, according to him.
Kumar denied all of Shahbaz Gill’s allegations, saying, “Imran Khan is a good person, but he chose the wrong advisers.”
Ramesh Kumar left the PML-N and joined the PTI in 2018.
‘In Sindh House, a lotay has been identified.’
Following the release of videos of disgruntled PTI MNAs from the Sindh House today, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry claimed that some lotay (turncoats) had been identified after they feared retaliation.
“Had they been conscientious, they would have tendered their resignations,” the minister wrote on his official Twitter account.
He urged the National Assembly’s speaker to take action against these “traitors” and demanded that they be disqualified for life.
‘Sindh House will not be used as a horse-trading centre.’
According to well-informed sources, the PTI political committee meeting, led by Prime Minister Imran Khan, decided earlier today that Islamabad’s Sindh House would not be allowed to become a horse-trading hub in order to thwart the Opposition’s no-trust move.
After a federal minister accused the PPP of using the building for its “nefarious designs,” the Sindh House made headlines.
According to sources familiar with the situation, the meeting decided to keep a close eye on the lawmakers and the Sindh House to ensure that no one falls victim to horse-trading.
Civilian intelligence agencies were ordered to keep a close eye on lawmakers’ whereabouts, mobile phone data, and movements, and to report to the premier on a daily basis.
