KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) women members of National Assembly (MNA) have termed Pakistan Tehreek-e Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s call for the civil disobedience as a joke.
They said the PTI Chief should have mercy on the voters who favoured PTI for formation of Khyber Pakhtunkhawa provincial government during the last elections and should strive to resolve their grievances.
PPP women MNAs including Dr. Nafeesa Shah, Shazia Atta Marri and Dr. Shahida Rehmani, in a joint statement here Monday, said the country was already immersed in the worst crisis while the call for inciting civil disobedience would add oil to fire.
They advised the PTI Chairman that he should first get lessons for democracy and political dialogue as he was void of senses about the importance of political dialogue and mutual consultation.
The PPP women lawmakers asked the PTI Chairman to tell the nation whether his party leaders and workers would quit using cell phones to honour the call for the civil disobedience as every recharge of cell phone credit was connected with general sales tax.
They said the PTI Chairman had mistakenly assumed he was as great a leader as Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who had actualized a revolution with the power of ballot.
