PML-N walks out from NA over Bilawal Bhutto’s remarks

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Monday staged a walkout from the National Assembly as a protest against the remarks of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto, ARY News reported.

Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly, the PPP chairman said that the lower house of Parliament should only discuss the Ghotki train accident today instead of passing ordinances and discussing non-issues.

“We must put today’s agenda aside and talk about the Ghotki train accident only so that the public can be protected from such accidents in the future.”

“You are passing ordinances. Why are there frequent railway accidents in this government? Do you feel pain for the people of Ghotki?” Bilawal asked.

“The poor people of the country who travel by train are not safe and when we draw the attention of the house to this tragedy, some so called leaders from opposition benches start shining their politics with papers in their hands instead of talking about the Ghotki issue,” Bilawal hits out at PML-N MNA Ahsan Iqbal.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lawmakers immediately staged a walkout from the lower house following PPP chairman Bilawal’s remarks.
