Stay tuned with 24 News HD Android App
PTI MPA Momina Waheed Momina has submitted her reply to show-cause notice over failure to attend the Punjab Assembly assembly session on January 12.
She said she was in Karachi and could not make it to Lahore because of a smog-related air travel halt and misinformation about the session timing.
She said she neither has a private plane nor the capital to charter a plane.
Her reply read: “I am in Karachi due to a death in the family. I had told my parliamentary leader about the same. I was willing to come back but was told the vote is not on the 11th but rather on the 12th.
"Of course, the fact it would be held at 12 am on the 12th was not conveyed to me in time. Due to smog conditions, there were no night flights to Lahore (from Karachi) and I don't own my private plane not can I afford to charter one.
"I remain a member of the Pakistan Tehreek Insaaf and if I have said anything in any public forum I would like you to show me the same."
