Our Westeros Corresspondent
In a key executive decision, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has formed a 7-member task force to explain to him the family tree of House Targaryen in the hit TV series Game of Thrones.
“I have a keen understanding of the notations that one takes into account when examining the shajras, I just need someone to explain this particular family tree to me,” the head of government said.
Speaking to reporters at the prime minister’s secretariat, he said that he did not know, exactly, who the Mad King was. “Was he Khaleesi’s father? If so, who was Rhaegar Targaryen? Was he his son, his brother, who was he?”
Opposition members, though happy with the formation of the commission, want an expansion of the ToRs of the commission.
“We are happy with the commission, but that isn’t enough,” said PTI leader Imran Khan, on the floor of the National Assembly on Saturday. “We also need to know whether it was the Mad King that had kidnapped Ned Stark’s sister or Rhaegar Targaryen. Merely the family tree would not give us that particular answer.”
Railways Minister Khwaja Saad Rafiq replied on the floor that though the treasury benches have no objections to the specifics of the expansion that the PTI seeks, the commission would then be stretched too thin. “And we also have to be fair,” he said. “If we agree to these demands, then how can we say no to the PkMAP’s demand to investigate whether the Dothraki have ever faced an army from Westeros.”
