Posted on 1 years ago
ISLAMABAD (INP): Lack of interest and absence of members of parliament in one of the most significant sessions to debate over the national security issue on Tuesday, turned it a show lacking much expected feed back and drawing strong reaction from leader of opposition Ch. Nisar Ali Khan.
On Tuesday, the session chaired by speaker Fahmida Mirza drew little interest from the members as most of the seats from treasury as well as opposition remained empty.
The seriousness of the members could be gauged from the fact that after expenditure of millions of rupees on holding of the special session, more than 70 per cent seats were empty.
Ministers also skipped the session. Ch. Nisar Ali Khan expressing his disgust said that those members who had taken TA, DA in advance and remained absent, were not doing justice with their responsibilities.
