PML-N decides to continue boycott of Punjab Assembly sessions
LAHORE: The opposition Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) has decided to continue with its boycott of Punjab Assembly sessions until its suspended MPAs are not reinstated.
A meeting of the PML-N parliamentary party was held in the provincial capital today.
Majority of the MPAs backed the proposal not to attend the assembly proceedings until its demand with regard to reinstatement of its six MPAs is not accepted.
A day earlier, the PML-N decided that its newly elected MPAs from Punjab will not take oath until the six suspended party MPAs are not permitted to attend sessions.
The speaker of the house had issued show-cause notices to half a dozen members of the opposition for allegedly vandalizing furniture and using abusive language during the PA session called to discuss budget.
The MPAs who were issued notices included Muhammad Ashraf, Malik Muhammad Wahid, Muhammad Yaseen Amir, Muhammad Mirza, Tariq Masih Gill and Zabul-Nisa.
The members are accused of disturbing the budget session, tearing budget copies, breaking microphones, recording machines and furniture of the house.
