Chaudhry Nisar blasts PTI lawmakers’ absence from NA

ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar on Monday expressed outrage over consecutive absence of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmakers from the lower house, National Assembly.

Deputy Speaker Murtaza Javed Abbasi led NA session informed the house that PTI lawmakers were not attending NA session consecutively from last 40 days.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar said that he would apprise Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over the issue and ‘such lawmakers have no right to hold ministries’.

Nisar said that the lawmakers’ absence from the NA session was quite serious matter. He complained that some federal ministers were not sending their parliamentary secretary in the house which was the part of severe negligence. He added that all lawmakers were answerable to the parliament after masses.

It is noteworthy to mention here that the absentees include PTI’s Shafqat Mehmood, Munaza Hasan, Rai Hassan Nawaz and Ayesha Gullalai.

However, he appealed to postpone Question and Answer session in the house for one day due to absence of lawmakers which later accepted by the deputy speaker.
