ISLAMABAD: Speaker of the National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq on Friday wrote a letter to member of the parliament Jamshed Dasti, asking him to present proofs for his claims regarding parliament lodges becoming a “centre of immoral activities,” Express News reported.

Sadiq has asked Dasti to meet him in chamber on March 3 with all the evidence he has.

On February 27, Dasti had stunned fellow parliamentarians when he had said that liquor worth millions of rupees was supplied in the parliament lodges and that a pungent smell of hashish engulfs the area.

“Girls are brought in the lodges and dance parties [take place],” Dasti had alleged, claiming that he has evidence in the form of video footage of mujras taking place in the lodges.

There are 359 suites in the Parliament Lodges, 83 of which are reserved for members of the Senate, while the other 276 are for MNAs.

'Allegations are baseless'

While addressing the National Assembly today, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan stated that the allegations levelled by Jamshed Dasti were baseless as it was not possible for the 'immoral activities' to go undetected in the parliament lodges because of the security apparatus in place.

He also said there were 23 cameras in place at the entrance and exit points and it was impossible for such activities to take place.

Nisar further stated that since respectable families of parliamentarians including children also live in these parliament lodges, these 'immoral activities' cannot take place there.

Will provide evidence

Dasti, while to speaking to the media in Islamabad, said that he will present the evidence regarding the "immoral activities" in the Parliament lodges in front of the speaker of the National Assembly in chamber.

He also said that he does not have any personal enmity against anyone, adding that he does not need cheap popularity.

He has the right to feel pain for such a serious matter. No one should criticize him rather should give him support to unveil the people involved. All opposing him have directly or indirectly involved in the situation being talked about ( Mujra and other activities) I believe that such things exist because of which Pakistan is on the way of destruction.
