The Punjab Assembly Speaker while congratulating Mian Shahbaz on his election said that he was 'a son of the soil'. Sometime back, another N-League member Ch Nisar while congratulating Prime Minister Gilani in National Assembly had stated twice that he was a 'son of the soil'. Would these people like to clarify what the term means and who are they targeting for not being a son of the soil? -REHAN ZAMIN, Karachi, via e-mail, June 12.
