Dr. Awan has also demanded of the private TV channel to show both sides of the story. “I will take legal action in this regard”, she said in a statement after the video went viral.
Thousands of people shared the video and condemned the incident.
“Your statement was akin to pouring salt on someone’s wounds,” he said, to which Awan claimed that her statement had been misconstrued. From there, the two continued to butt heads as the host and PML-N’s Uzma Bukhari watched on.
“Where was your chief minister?” yelled Awan as Mandokhail shouted back, asking whether the federal or the provincial government was responsible for the railway. However, the situation escalated when Mandokhail brought up the corruption allegations against Awan.
“Look who is talking, the one who is bathed in corruption from head to toe,” she said.
“What about you? You were a minister, didn’t you do corruption with buses?” Mandokhail hit back.
