Firdous Ashiq Awan said in Punjabi,” Ki Matlab Aey,” (What do you mean?), to which the Punjab Assembly security personnel said, “You are respectful, but you are now not allowed to go inside as your name is not on the list.”
She insisted the staff to look again her name in the name but all her efforts go in vain and she had to move back from Punjab Assembly.
Firdous Ashiq Awan reacting to the news commented, “My name is on the list but someone cut my name from the list. I don’t know who did this.”
