ISLAMABAD (ENNS/MD) PTI chief and Prime Minister Imran Khan banned Faisal Vawda on Thursday from appearing on any talk show for two weeks, taking notice of the federal minister’s boot stunt from a few days ago.
Vawda appeared on a talk show a couple of days ago and mocked the PML-N slogan “Vote Ko Izzat Do” by saying “Boot Ko Izzat Do”, criticising the party for deviating from its stance and lending unconditional support for the services chief’s tenure bills. He startled all by placing a black boot on top of a table.
“I am going to bring this [boot]to every talk show,” he said. “This is how democratic the PML-N is. They lie down to kiss the boot,” he added.
When asked why he was criticising the PML-N and PPP for supporting the PTI government on the Army Act bill, Vawda said: “It was our stance. We were doing it for the Pakistani nation and we stood firm [on our stance].”
Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Firdous Ashiq Awan, confirmed that the prime minister took notice of the incident, banning Vawda from appearing on any talk shows for two weeks and has sought an explanation from the federal minister for the way he behaved.
