KARACHI: As today’s session started, Speaker of Sindh Assembly, Agha Siraj Durrani, condemned the incident happened in the house yesterday. He said that’ it is very sad that the members who represent the house were the ones who slammed and disrespected its honour’. Agha Siraj also said that’ I’ve seen all the video recordings of the incident and have identified who was involved in it and who even helped them. I’ll make sure that strict actions are taken against them and no such incident is to happen in future ever again’. The speaker thanked the member s of Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) who helped him maintain the decorum of the house while this disrespectful act was being conducted. ‘Everyone present in the house has to follow the set of rules and regulations set for the decorum of the house’, the speaker said.

While this was happening inside the house, PTI lawmakers tried to create a fuss outside the assembly building while verbally and physically abusing the assembly staff and security officials. During all this happening, MPA Firdous Shamim Naqvi walked out from the session as he tried to deliver a speech without the permission of the speaker followed by the slogans of his resignation from his seat by the members.

Lastly, TLP leader Muhammad Qasim Fakhri proposed an amendment in the rule & regulations of the Sindh Assembly.

On this Mukesh Kumar advised the speaker to move this amendment to the parliamentary affairs. On which, the speaker added to make sure this amendment is to be made permanently in the ‘Rules & Regulations of the Sindh Assembly’.
