Perhaps Bilawal’s not happy as I hold Khursheed Shah in high esteem: Perviaz



Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid on Friday again touched Opposition Leader in National Assembly Khursheed Shah’s knee and told media that he demonstrates this gesture because he respects Shah.

The minister said his personality was in front of everyone, but it should not be taken as if “I am a coward.” He also said that touching others’ knees was an ancient eastern tradition.

To a question regarding Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto’s tweet in which he took a dig at the ruling PML-N after a video of Pervaiz Rashid bowing before Khursheed Shah emerged on TV screens, Pervaiz Rashid said it appeared as if Bilawal was not happy over him holding Shah in esteem.

Bilawal posted a message on Twitter: “When they are in trouble, they touch your feet and once out of trouble, they hold your neck.”
