ISLAMABAD: Member of the National Assembly (NA) Jamshed Dasti on Thursday accused some parliamentarians of bringing alcohol, hashish and even dancing women to the Parliament Lodges for entertainment, Express News reported.
During the National Assembly session on Thursday, MNA Dasti said that the lodges are often frequented by female dancers, and the lodges reek of hashish. He alleged that liquor worth 40-50 million rupees annually is supplied to the lodges of the parliamentarians.
When Dasti made these claims, acting chairperson Naeema Kishwar turned off his microphone and asked him to discuss the matter in the chambers, not in the assembly hall. She asked MNA Dasti to present proof to his claims, to which he said that a medical test should be conducted on all parliamentarians to find traces of drugs in their systems.
The NA speaker Ayaz Sadiq said that the lodges are equipped with working CCTV cameras and footage for the last month is available. He added that if Dasti’s claims are correct, the parliamentarians will be questioned and be held accountable.
However, if Dasti’s claims are wrong, the parliament will decide his fate.
