Calling an MPA of his own party a “jew”, an MNA of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has accused the provincial lawmaker of “stealing his constituency’s funds”.
As per the details, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Finance Minister Taimoor Saleem Jhagra and MNA Noor Alam Khan have come face-to-face on Twitter over a dispute on development funds.
In an August 3 Twitter thread, that has now gone viral over the micro-blogging website — Jhagra said that his attention was drawn towards a video of Khan, wherein he has used inappropriate language against him.
The series of tweets came after a viral video showed Khan criticising his own party’s MPA. He called Jhagra a “jew”, adding that he was not a popular politician and had come from former ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
Khan was also heard accusing Jhagra of misappropriating funds of his constituency and that he would go to the village of the provincial finance minister and “deal with him there”.
Reacting to the accusations, Jhagra responded by sharing clips from Khan’s speech and translating his words before clarifying his position.
The clips were followed by tweets wherein Jhagra shared “how he had promised Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan to ensure financial discipline”.
In his last tweet of the thread, the provincial minister wrote:
While the spat reveals the rift that appears to be widening within the ruling party, it has not yet attracted an official response. PTI activists from PK-70, however, have reportedly held a rally to condemn the use of objectionable language by the MNA.
