Pak parliamentarians get 100 condoms each as Eid gift!

The Ministry of Population has distributed this unique gift to each male lawmaker in a bid to encourage population control in the country.

“Yes, the condom packs have been distributed among the male parliamentarians. Each MP has been gifted a pack of condoms containing 100 condoms,” the Daily Times quoted a ministry official as saying.

However, some opposition MNAs have taken the distribution of condoms as an insult. They have decided to take up the matter with National Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Amir Hussain.

“I will take up the issue with the speaker and move a privilege motion if need be. We are all educated people and know the benefits of contraceptives, but this move is meant to humiliate the MPs,” said a PPP MNA.

He went on to say that such “stupid acts” were perhaps the government’s way of showing the world its “moderate face”. (ANI)
