Peshawar: Javed Nasim, a member of KP assembly sets examples of simplicity.
Parliamentary secretary for inter provincial coordination takes no VIP privilege whatoever. His office consists of nothing but a plastic mat.
“I try that whatever life I have I spend it in limits and spend it with my poor population. There is status quo government, status quo people, they do not accept the poor this is why I have started a system that no matter how poor a person is he comes to me satisfied without any hesitation. There should be no hurdle to meet me, I am always available for them.”
But being on the right didn’t come easy to him.
“I am the poorest person in the Parliament, so they didn’t accept me. The party didn’t accept me, the leader didn’t accept me. I am thankful to the PM, it is his trust on me. He has all my certificates that I am neat and clean. This is why I am the parliamentary secretary.”
Walking in his office in Secretariat Peshawar one cannot tell that it is of a government official.
