Anchor Saleem Safi of the GeoTV program “Jirga with Saleem Safi,” has invited Pakistan People Party Senator Sherry Rehman and party central information secretary and member of the National Assembly Dr. Nafisa Shah to discuss the incident involving the private jet with party co-chairman chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on board that skidded off the runway at Rawalpindi’s Benazir Bhutto International Airport.
Safi starts the conversation, “Of course, we render our thanks that the co-chairman of your party remained safe in that accident.
“How do see this? Was it an accident or a conspiracy to eliminate the true heir of immortal martyr ZA Bhutto and his daughter, the queen of martyrs, Benazir Bhutto?”
Nafisa Shah is quick to p[ick up the cue, “Saleem it is a crude attempt of this selected prime minister, Imran Khan, to remove our beloved leader, the only true heir of the immortal martyr ZA Bhutto and his daughter, the queen of martyrs, Benazir Bhutto, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
“You know how Imran Khan has refused to name the new Islamabad airport for the queen of martyrs, Benazir Bhutto. Only to insult the memory of our great martyr, this airport, now the older airport, has been downgraded to handle private jets.”
Sherry Rehman offers her view, “You know a true and real leader of the masses cannot travel with commoners. His majesty requires that he travel in his private jet. The aviation authorities were not unaware that who was flying in this aircraft. Yes, they were directed not to give full care and attention. It is a conspiracy! Team Imran is losing. They are scared of the real leader who have so many stately homes named for him.
“You know what this outgoing chief justice, Saqib said of Bilawal that is he is clean and innocent. Mind you these are his words! And then he pointed out the most important thing that Bilawal is only taking forward his mother’s legacy.”
Nafisa Shah cannot hold herself back, “Yes, the same chief justice who has been so unfair to us at every turn and corner was obliged to admit that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is the authentic standard bearer of Bhuttoism… sacrificing his comforts to take forward his mother, our queen of martyrs, Benazir Bhutto’s legacy!
“What is Imran Khan’s legacy? The World Cup… the one done 25 years ago. What World Cup… they have one every two years. But does he have a legacy like our queen of martyrs?
“Not only, I, but also my sister, Sherry, will move bills in the national assembly and senate that the prime minister who is also keeping the portfolio of interior minister should be personally held liable for this skidding. We will also demand that NAB [National Accountability Bureau] should investigate this matter, and specifically as an attempt to murder our leader in perpetuity.”
Saleem Safi, “Can this matter… this dastardly act… this incompetence on part of the Imran Khan government discussed by the public account committee?”
Sherry Rehman offers her view, “You know we drew our wagons together and forced Imran Khan to accept [leader of the opposition] Shehbaz Sharif as chairman of this committee. Yes, I agree it was our collective failure that he was obliged to agree that he will not sit on matters related to his party, but this airport incident is within his scope of inquiry.
“We are going to demand our right. We cannot endanger the life of our leader. Our chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is being discomforted by being made to fly in a business jet. During Nawaz Sharif time, Pakistan purchased five Boeing 777s. Nawaz Sharif always flew in this specially appointed airplane. You know where Nawaz Sharif is these days. The plane is gathering dust because Imran Khan has no concept of prime ministerial class.
“The chief justice has affirmed that Bilawal is taking forward his mother, our queen of martyrs, Benazir Bhutto’s legacy! Therefore, we declare that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has the right to use the Boeing 777 used by Nawaz Sharif.”
