LAHORE: Senior journalist and Geo News anchor Hamid Mir said Sunday Firdous Ashiq Awan and Jehangir Tareen did not have the courage to criticize Prime Minister Imran Khan and, conversely, they had made Chief Secretary Azam Khan a scapegoat.
Speaking in Pakistan’s Naya Geo News program, Mir said more than two dozen people from the Firdous constituency were recruited in the PID. When the PM learned of this, he ordered the removal of those recruited against the rules. Mir rejected Tareen’s opinion that he had a problem with Azam Khan when he acted as directed by the prime minister. Mir said Firdous’s claims about disruption in his ministry were also untrue, adding that the PM fired Yousuf Baig and Iftikhar Durrani because of him, and now he wants Shahbaz Gul removed.
Hamid Mir said that if someone who was transferred by the PM received the transfer, the PM accommodated the person in another capacity. Mir cited Gul’s example, which after his removal from the CM office did not criticize the chief minister. Gul was somewhat promoted when he was transferred to the PM House. Firdous will not be able to get any position through attacks on Azam Khan or blackmail, Mir added.
Reacting to Mir’s analysis, Firdous in his tweet asked Mir to produce the domicile of those recruited from his constituency. If not, he told Mir, what Maulana Tariq Jameel said had to be accepted.
