The directives of National Assembly (NA) Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri has banned the members from calling Prime Minister ‘selected’ in the House.

“Ban on the use of word ‘selected’ is the worst censorship in history.”

He further stated that “There is no freedom for anyone in ‘Naya Pakistan’. Neither people, politics nor journalism is independent. ‘Naya Pakistan’ is a ‘censored Pakistan’ which is not acceptable for us.”
“We sacrificed immensely for the supremacy of this House.”
“We neither accept censorship on media nor on politics. Not issuing production order of National Assembly members is also censorship,” he further added.
While commenting on the leadership of PM Imran Khan, he stated that PM Imran Khan is not a perfect leader. He is just ruling the country and not leading it. People are facing from hand to mouth.
“An average Pakistani is paying the price of this government’s incompetency due to increased levels of taxes.”
He also demanded that the government should take back its anti-people budget.
