ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister of Water and Power Khwaja Asif apologized to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf parliamentarian Shireen Mazari, a day after his vulgar outburst in the assembly where he called Mazari a ‘tractor trolley’.
In a letter written to speaker Ayaz Sadiq, Khwaja Asif apologized for his behaviour.
“In the letter I have written I have apologized to Shireen Mazari. I should not have said what I did. But my reaction was natural,” Khwaja Asif said in the assembly session.
PTI leader Shireen Mazari rejected the apology. “Everyone in the opposition was shouting but Khwaja Asif targeted me specifically. The remarks were indecent.”
PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that such behavior was making Pakistan a joke in the world. “Men should reconsider their behavior towards women. This has become a national habit,” he said.
