The opposition parties on Wednesday (May 8) staged protest after Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan left the National Assembly (NA) session without addressing the lawmakers. The prime minister arrived in the house but soon left with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Amir Dogar. The opposition lawmakers staged a protest over the premier’s abrupt departure from the assembly and held placards inscribed with slogans against the rising prices of essential commodities.
On Speaker Asad Qaiser’s instructions, ministers Pervez Khattak and Noorul Haq Qadri tried to resolve the matter and took Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Khawaja Asif to the lobby to pacify the situation.
Later while responding to lawmakers’ queries, Federal Housing Minister Tariq Bashir Cheema said that this authority will provide one window facility to facilitate the private sector to invest in this mega project for construction of five million houses. He said the Prime Minister has launched the housing projects in Islamabad, Quetta and Okara, and construction work on the sites will soon commence.
Four bills were introduced in the House including “he Islamabad Capital Territory Domestic Workers Bill, 2019”, “The Constitution (Amendment) Bill 2019”, (Article 51 and 59), “The Protection of Persons against forced Religious Conversion Bill, 2019” and “The Criminal Law (Amendment) Bill 2019”.
