Speaker seeks proofs of allegations from Jamshed Dasti
ISLAMABAD: Speaker National Assembly Ahmed Sadiq has written a letter to Jamshed Dasti MNA seeking evidence about his allegations of the use of liquor and dance gatherings in Parliament Lodges, ARY News reported on Friday.
The speaker has also asked Dasti, an independent member from southern Punjab, to meet him in chamber on March 3 with all the evidence he has.
The Speaker has also ordered the police officials to submit the CCTV footage of one month of the Parliament Lodges to his office.
Jamshed Dasti yesterday stunned the house by stating that liquor worth of millions is being brought to the Parliament Lodges in Islamabad.
He claimed that footage of all goings-on in the parliament lodges was also available. He went on to say that parliament didn’t resolve problems of people, rather ‘dance gatherings’ taking place at parliament lodges.
He had said that liquor worth millions of rupees was supplied in the parliament lodges and that a smell of hashish engulfs the area. Dasti had claimed that he has evidence in the form of video footage of mujras taking place in the lodges.
Speaker Ayaz Sadiq said the inquiry would be held into allegations. “If proved, the responsible persons will be punished and if unproven, the house will decide punishment for the accuser.”
