Looking on the bright side, Saad Rafique tells the National Assembly the benefits of being in jail

Now that he has been in jail for over a month, PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafique sees some benefits in being incarcerated.

Speaking at the National Assembly on Thursday, he said when a person is in jail, they have a lot of time to think.

I get to sleep a lot and always say my prayers on time, said the former Railways minister. I also get to eat my meals on time, he said, reminding his fellow parliamentarians that they did not always get to do so in their profession.

He thanked the people who put him and his brother in jail. This is my first break in 12 years, he said, explaining that the last time he was in jail was 12 years ago.

His brother was last imprisoned 30 years ago. Both brothers are in NAB’s custody in the Paragon City Housing case.
