Islamabad – June 17 (Online): Speaker of National Assembly Asad Qaiser on Thursday lifted a ban on seven MNAs who were barred from entering the House over ‘disorderly’ conduct.
According to details, the staff and security of the National Assembly have been informed about the decision of the Speaker. Seven Members of National Assembly were barred from entering the parliament over ‘grossly disorderly’ conduct.
According to the order, on 14th and 15th June, during the speech of the Leader of the Opposition on budget 2021-22, the conduct of the seven lawmakers was grossly disorderly as they violated the rules and despite repeated directions, they interrupted proceedings of the House.
The lawmakers include Ali Gohar Khan, Chaudhry Hamid Hameed, Sheikh Rohale Asghar, Faheem Khan, Abdul Majeed Khan, Ali Nawaz Awan and Syed Agha Rafiullah.
It merits mention that the decision came after the National Assembly turned into a battleground on Tuesday as the opposition and treasury members scuffled with each other and threw budget documents and books when the latter continued their noisy protest to disrupt Shehbaz’s budget speech for a second consecutive day.
