سیالکوٹ کے رمضان بازار میں اسسٹنٹ کمشنر سونیا صدف کے ساتھ پیش آئے ناخوشگوار واقعے پر افسوس ہوا! میں ذاتی طورپر اسسٹنٹ کمشنر سونیا صدف کو جانتا ہوں وہ ذمہ دار اور قابل آفیسر ہیں! خواتین کا ہمارے معاشرے کے گورننس سسٹم میں کردار انتہائی خوش آئیند ہے جسے سراہا جانا چاہیئے!— Usman Dar (@UdarOfficial) May 2, 2021
Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz also stood with AC Sialkot. and bureaucrats get appointed to any administrative position after excelling in studies and passing competitive exams. No government official has the right to insult any officer and demanded Awan's apology to AC Sonia Sadaf.
اپنی ناکامی اور بدترین ارکردگی کا غصہ سرکاری افسران پر نکالنا فرعونیت ہے۔رمضان بازاروں ميں غير معياری،مہنگی اشياء حکومتی نالائقی کا منہ بولتا ثبوت ہیں۔سرکاری افسران آپ کے ذاتی ملازم نہیں۔سيالکوٹ کے رمضان بازار ميں خاتون اسسٹنٹ کمشنر سونیا صدف کے ساتھ ہونے والا سلوک قابل مذمت ہے۔— Maryam Nawaz Sharif (@MaryamNSharif) May 2, 2021
Here are some reactions of netizens who slammed Awan over uncivilised treatment.
One stall is the reason that work of an officer is reprimanded? That too in a manner which might befit the SACM personally but not someone representing the Gov. Dist Admin is the reason there are Ramzan Bazaars. Ek SACM sahiba laga kar dekhayein. Well done #ACSIALKOT ! Respect✊ pic.twitter.com/TT6ZPVeDed— Ahmed Chaudhry (@ahmedfaisalch) May 2, 2021
