Opposition stages walk out

KARACHI: Opposition parties in Sindh assembly staged a walk out here Tuesday.

Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) walked out as a protest when the chair rejected Private Resolution 60 given notice by Nusrat Bano Seher Abbasi (PML-F) as Out Of Order.

Nusrat Abbasi’s resolution was regarding forming a special committee to ascertain the status of the resolution passed by the assembly. She complained that this House had passed dozens of resolution that still await implementation. She said there should be a House committee to keep updated record of the passed resolution and ensure their timely implementation.

However, the treasury benches said for establishment of such a committee a motion should be moved. Nusrat Abbasi agreed to make such a motion but was told to submit such a motion to assembly secretariat. She requested the chair to relax rules and allow her making the motion today, as in past speaker had relaxed rules to facilitate members server times, but her request was rejected and the chair turned down her private resolution as Out of Order.

On this the opposition members staged walkout. However, later they came back after 44 minutes.
