Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan, Ali Amin Gandapur responded to critics on Tuesday over a recent video in which his minor son can be seen driving a car.
The minister took to Twitter to answer journalist Mansoor Khan, saying traffic laws apply on roads, motorways and highways. Gandapur said his son was driving the car on fields owned by him.
“Firstly traffic law applies on roads, highways or motorways so no law is violated, upgrade your knowledge. Secondly, it’s my own land, my own vehicle, and my own son. Thirdly, grow up Mr Mansoor Ali Khan and others who negatively commented and mind your own business,” said the minister.
In the video, Gandapur can be seen sitting on the passenger seat and recording a video of the boy, who is driving the car.
Under-age driving is illegal as per Pakistani law and only those who are aged 18 years and above can apply for a driving licence.
