The resolution urged the Federal Government to raise the issue of Indian involvement in disturbing peace of the province with International Community including United Nations. Nine members participated in the discussion on this resolution consuming 81 minutes of the proceeding.

The resolution which was jointly tabled by treasury lawmakers also condemned the attack by unidentified mob on Media Houses in Karachi. Fifteen lawmakers expressed their views on this resolution consuming two hours and one minute of the sitting time.

A JUI-F male lawmaker, Sardar Abdul Rehman Khaitran pointed out the quorum soon after the adoption of first resolution. The Chair ordered the bell to be rung for one minute.
