ISLAMABAD—As the main opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz decided to back the government over the issue of army chief Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa's extension, journalists took to Twitter to berate PML-N, reminding it of its slogan of giving respect to vote.
Zarrar Khuhro of DawnNews in his usual cheeky comments simply asked: “Vote ko extension do?”
Saleem Safi of Geo News in a tweet in Urdu advised the PML-N leadership to go to the house of former stalwart Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and apologize, saying if the party had listened to the former interior minister, they would not have lost the government.
Matiullah Jan, formerly of Waqt News, said the PML-N journey which started with the call for giving respect to vote ended on the extension of COAS.
A bitter Tariq Butt of The News simply played on the infamous words of PML-N leader Khawaja Asif that “koi sharm nahin hoti, koi haya nahin hoti – there is no shame, there is no shame.”
In a stinging comment, Talat Hussain, previously of Geo News, said PML-N has wiped off what PTI spitted over the issue of extension, and added that in this way the opposition party has given respect to vote.
Ansar Abbsi of The News said this U-turn of PML-N beats all reverses taken by PTI. “One single U-turn of PMLN surpasses all the U-turns of PTI.”
