NA deputy speaker asks PPP’s Agha Rafiullah to leave session over ruckus
ISLAMABAD (City News) – National Assembly (NA) Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri on Wednesday has asked Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Agha Rafilullah to leave the session for disturbing the decorum of the House.
According to details, the opposition leaders surrounded the dais of the deputy speaker and chanted slogans.
Responding to the protest, Qasim Suri directed the management to send those creating ruckus during the session out of the assembly.
Meanwhile, speaking in the House, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) member Khawaja Asif said that the incumbent government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has made the life of a common man miserable and asked which lobby is being protected on wheat issue.
He further walked out of the session after completing his address.
Responding to points raised by PML-N leader Khawaja Asif, Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan clarified that no decision has yet been taken about the wheat support price.
He said subsidy will be provided to the farmers on agriculture inputs including seeds and fertilizers once the parliamentary committee on agriculture furnishes its recommendations.
On his turn, Minister for Communications Murad Saeed moved a resolution strongly condemning the statement made at the gathering of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) in Quetta against the article 251 of the constitution.
He said we denounce the anti-Pakistan statements being made from the platform of PDM and that the conspiracies are being hatched against the country. He categorically stated that no National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) will be given to the corrupt elements.
