Information Minister Fawad Chaudhary while talking to the press conference on Monday sarcastically made a comment that SUPARCO should consign some disruptive politicians to space for good.
Speaking about Pakistan’s space mission, the minister said,” There are some ministers who are creating chaos on the ground and should be sent to space.”
Fawad Chaudary is known for his fiery speeches and flamboyance. His comments on PM Imran Khan’s helicopter fuel cost per kilometer made him a ‘household name’.
That would be the appropriate solution, he asserted, adding,” I will ask SUPARCO to ensure that once these politicians go to space, they cannot return.”
Khursheed Shah, PPP’s leader, during his speech today at National Assembly took a jibe at Mr. Chaudhry’s remarks and said he had heard that Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO) had been “asked to transport miscreants to space”.
“I have heard that SUPARCO has asked for the data of last five years. The House will be empty if the plan goes on,” he said, suggesting that the majority of those who have been creating unrest during the last five years are sitting in the National Assembly.

He warned the government members against continuing with the “politics of name-calling”. Fawad Chaudary is known for his fiery speeches and flamboyance. His comments on PM Imran Khan’s helicopter fuel cost per kilometer made him a ‘household name’.
Observers close to PTI argue that the appointment of Fawad Chaudary as the Federal Information Minister was a strategic move on part of Imran Khan who wanted a person on this post who can keep the opposition at bay. So far, Mr. Fawad has successfully done this job.
However, he must also be responsible enough to cite correct facts in his media briefings. His claims of Saudi Arabia joining CPEC as a ‘third strategic partner’ were first rejected by Saudi officials and later on by the Finance Minister Asad Umar.
Majority of social media users take Fawad’s jibe on opposition lightly and we hope that the politicians will also not take his sarcasm to heart.
