He criticised that the ‘illiterate’ opposition showed unseriousness to recommend amendments to the LG bill and the lawmakers are now creating a scene in the assembly to create hurdles.

During CM’s speech, the opposition lawmakers tore copies of the bills and asked Murad Ali Shah to apologise for his discriminatory statement. They exchanged harsh words with the government lawmakers after surrounding the speaker’s dice.
