PA Passes Two Bills
THE Treasury in Punjab Assembly finally succeeded in passing two bills, namely ‘The Women University Multan Bill 2010’ and ‘The Institute of Southern Punjab Multan Bill 2010’ after foiling the Opposition’s three attempts of pointing out quorum.
The Opposition benches pointed out quorum thrice to bar the Treasury from passing the bill for the third consecutive day. Nevertheless, Law Minister Rana Sana managed to maintain quorum and both the bills were passed after dropping all the amendments forwarded by the Opposition.
Afterwards, a parliamentarian from Mandi Bahauddin told the law minister that the provincial government was deliberately delaying the constitution of Zakat and Ushar committees because all the national and provincial assembly members from this district belonged to the PPP.
Bashir Baghat alleged that the DCO concerned had nominated the chairmen zakat and usher committees through his signatures and all the members belonged to the PML-N. He claimed that a deserving person from the district received a stay order from the LHC against DCO decision and the now the government was deliberately avoiding holding its elections.
Law Minister Rana Sana informed the House that Bashir Baghat should have raised the issue in the parliamentary committee of the party as they were coalition partners.
