August 12, 2020

LAHORE:The Opposition legislators in Punjab Assembly condemned the attack on the vehicle of PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz during her visit to NAB office on Tuesday. PML-N MPA Sumera Komal submitted a resolution condemning the incident as well as torture, shelling on PML-N women activists by police. She submitted, “NAB and the present government have once again taken us back to the dictatorial era.” PPP-P parliamentary leader in Punjab Assembly (PA) Syed Hassan Murtaza, in a statement, said the attack and pelting stones on the vehicle of Maryam Nawaz were dictatorial acts.

He said whenever any leader was summoned by the court, the workers’ gathering was expected. He stated the workers couldn't tolerate the humiliation of their leaders. Moreover, Rana Manan, a PML-N MPA, also submitted an adjournment motion in the Punjab Asembly Secretariat against police.

He submitted the police deployed outside NAB office threw stones at his vehicle that was damaged from four sides. He also submitted that through a planned strategy, police provoked the PML-N workers.

Bizenjo: National Party Balochistan senior leader Hasil Bizenjo has demanded the government fulfil its responsibilities rather than defaming political parties.

Talking to The News, Senator Hasil Bizenjo stated that if police provoked political workers, their reaction was natural. “What can political workers do when police attack them with tear gas shells. They will respond to the situation and it happens in almost every agitation, whether it is related to student unions demonstrations or the protest of political workers,” said Senator Hasil Bizenjo.
