KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader and Leader of the Opposition in the Sindh Assembly Firdous Shamim Naqvi has apologised after criticising Prime Minister Imran Khan about gas and electricity shortages in Karachi.
“I am not concerned whether the PTI government is in power, or the PML-N. The gas delivery in this city is not right. I will keep on creating noise,” he said while speaking to media.
He said that the Energy Minister Omar Ayub and Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Petroleum Nadeem Babar should be ashamed for the crisis as two years have passed.
“The prime minister should listen, Omar Ayub should also listen and Nadeem Babar should also listen. I will make sure they feel ashamed,” said Naqvi.
Later, Naqvi posted an apology on his Twitter account. “My intention was to say I am going to complain about the energy minister and SSGC to the PM,” he wrote, adding that he later realised he was not able to convey that properly.
I would like to apologise to all INSAFIANS
My intention was to say I am going to complain about the energy minister and SSGC to the PM On hearing the recording words are not exactly conveying that.
My apologies to my leader. Who is the most committed & upright man I have met.
