“My dear Hon. friend, you’ve been in politics long enough and have experience. In any other serious jurisdiction, you would have been breaking the Ministerial code by this with calls for your resignation. Sure u are aware of the most recent row in the UK about a former PM calling a current Uk minister about some private business.As an MP, has the Speaker officially granted you leave to engage in private business? If not yet, It can also constitute a breach of your parliamentary code of ethics.Wish u well though. Will be inviting you and yours soon for Iftar.” he said.
