Atmosphere turned tense when Prime Minister Imran Khan reprimanded Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtiar during the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s parliamentary party meeting in Islamabad ahead of budget session in the National Assembly on Tuesday.

The minister was rebuked for forgetting an important file regarding the Federal Budget 2019-20 at home, Express News reported. On his turn to brief the meeting, the federal minister kept on looking for the missing file, drawing the premier’s ire.

After the admonishment for the second time, the elderly servant was ordered to stand outside the meeting room and hold the minister’s mobile phone.
