In the absence of opposition and MQM members, Pakistan Peoples Party on Thursday managed to pass a resolution in the provincial assembly against division of Sindh.
The resolution was jointly moved by Sohail Akbar and other PPP members. The resolution was moved in the backdrop of recent demand of MQM to create more administrative units in Sindh.
Earlier, utter pandemonium and ruckus was witnessed as the Sindh Assembly began its session at a new building. The opposition in the Sindh Assembly staged a walkout after the Deputy Speaker Shehla Raza didn’t allow Shahyar Mehar to move a resolution. The dispute apparently began on allotment of seats in the new assembly hall as opposition objected that its members were not allotted seats together.
The opposition member and treasury benches exchange heated words and the hall then echoed with slogans “Marsoon Marsoon Sindh Na Desoon.” Deputy speaker really struggled to restore order in the house. MQM members boycotted the session in protest against arrest of its workers overnight. – Samaa
