Punjab Assembly

ISLAMABAD: The Treasury and the Opposition benches in the Punjab Assembly have agreed to consider 45 demands for grants and six cut motions after the budget debate.

Punjab Assembly Speaker Rana Muhammad Iqbal said this during the 6th sitting of 9th session. He chaired the entire sitting that lasted an hour and 15 minutes. Starting two hours and 23 minutes behind the schedule, the Punjab Assembly rejected one cut motion on police department jointly moved by the opposition parties.

As many as ten members – PTI (5), PML (3), PPPP and PML-N (one each) – took part in the debate on this cut motion. Law Minister Rana Sanaullah responded to the queries of the opposition parties during the debate; however, he regretted that the lawmakers did not focus on objectivity and asked irrelevant questions.

An adjournment motion, sponsored by two PML-N lawmakers – Sheikh Ala Uddin and Nighat Sheikh – was brought before the House regarding their reservations over educational program in the Government Murray College, Sialkot which was responded to by the relevant department.

The opposition lawmakers protested within the House over the rejection of the cut motion.  The House will debate the remaining five cut motions on Monday while demands for grants will also be considered from 8th sitting (June 24, 2014) on Tuesday.
