ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senator Mushahidullah Khan has called for actor Veena Malik to be made a member of the Senate in the next elections, since this move would at least ensure senators attend Senate sessions.
Speaking to Express News in Islamabad on Wednesday, he presented the suggestion on a lighter note, frustrated that the Senate rarely convened to a full house.
The Senator went as far as to suggest that Veena should be made the Deputy Chairman of the Senate. “When she will come to the Senate and display her ‘assets’ then maybe all the other senators too will declare their assets. And then perhaps then they will all join Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf,” he chuckled.
Talking to Express News, Senator Tariq Azeem was of the view that regardless of Veena Malik being made a Senator, members of the Senate should come to the sessions and answer questions regarding their departments. He cited example of India where the Rajya Sabha has a few celebrities as members.
