One has heard of people running scared of rats and cockroaches, but a member of the Pakistan National Assembly doing the same is news.
According to the Daily Times, Pakistan Muslim League MNA Ali Akbar Wains has complained to Islamabad's Capital Development Authority (CDA) that cockroaches at his official residence have made life a living hell.
"My complaint is different and strange. It has become impossible for me to live in my official residence because of cockroaches," he was quoted as saying.
"I have asked CDA officials several times to come to my rescue, but nothing has been done," Wains added.
