Fayyazul Hassan Chohan, the only minister in the world who was sacked for a bad tweet, said in a statement on Tuesday that the chief minister, Sardar Usman Buzdar, by giving a lift to three women wading the rainwater, had created a new chapter of history in the pick-and-drop sector of Lahore.
Talking to himself, which some journalists overheard too, he said it was wrong to say that the minister was on a pleasure drive on a rainy day.
“Also, it’s equally wrong to say that he was trying to test the power of his high horse powered four-wheeler; the fact is that the chief minister was simply visiting the city to see if anyone wanted a free ride or not. Thankfully, he found the three women stranded in the rainwater and he rescued them.”
As the night fell, CM spokesperson Dr Shahbaz Gill told several TV talk shows that Chief Minister Buzdar had not demanded any fare from the three stranded women.
National Accountability Bureau Chairman retired Justice Javed Iqbal has taken notice of the giving a life to the women and has decided to first call the women to record their statement at his office. He has directed the women not to bring their mobile phones with them otherwise a reference will be filed against them. He said it was the misuse of official vehicles for the lift purposes.
