I think he was referring to PTI, wholesomely. BTW, it is about the people whose tax money is spent on giving these celebrities the award and the allied benefits. It seems their legitimate right to question this. Although, a number of prominent names from the industry such as Reema Khan, Nasir Adeeb, Babra Sharif, Shabbir Jan, Iftikhar Thakur, Sajjad Ali, Attaullah Esakhelvi is also on the list and no one is questioning their names.So you are saying that IK wrote out the recipient list? Get a life.
To be honest, each one of these names can be classed as the performers who have uplifted the image of Pakistan. Conversely, I cannot remember any of Mehwish Hayat's performances which even come close. So surely, if there is smoke, there must be fire. If a large number of people is opposing this move, it simply means there had been some favoritism going on in here.
Overall, PTI, instead of getting stubborn on it, should take it as an opportunity to readjust their course of action, otherwise they will have to pay the price for it.
