Provincial Sports Minister Sardar Muhammad Bux Khan Mahar did at least 50 press-ups before a camera and his footage ran by almost all TV channels. The minister’s video came with a challenge to his Punjab counterparts to replicate the same.
However, senior Punjab minister Rana Sanaullah responded to the challenge with a trace of sarcasm in his voice.
Speaking to ARY News, he said it’s good to have physical fitness, but mental fitness is equally important too. He added that push-ups are no benchmark for ideal physical fitness.
He also referred to the Sindh chief minister to take notice of Bux’s pushups and include him in some team. Sanaullah just didn’t stop here. He concluded his statement saying that “if a minister can do 50 push-ups, the chief minister must perform at least 500 of them.”
