Babus disrespecting Parliament will not be spared: PA speaker

August 03, 2021

LAHORE: Punjab Assembly Speaker Pervaiz Elahi on Monday continued his tirade against bureaucracy in the ongoing Punjab Assembly session and warned officials to respect the parliament or get ready to face action.

The speaker once again adjourned the House without taking any agenda after he was told that the secretary Food was absent during the question hour session. He remarked that the secretary was supposed to be present when questions related to his department were to be taken up in the assembly. He also made it clear that those officials would face action in accordance with the law, who were responsible for not bringing MPA Nazir Chohan in the House despite the issuance of his production orders. During the session which started with a delay of nearly two hours, Punjab Prison Minister Fayyazul Hassan Chohan said Nazir Chohan was in the Kot Lakhpat Jail when he developed some heart-related issues. “I immediately took keen interest and tried to become a bridge between Nazir Chohan and Shehzad Akbar after talking to the high command of the party,” said Fayyaz. He said Nazir Chohan did a wrong thing while questioning the religious beliefs of Shehzad Akber.
