ISLAMABAD: The Provincial Assembly of Sindh adopted two private members’ resolutions on Tuesday for strengthening security of provincial educational institutions as well as equipping them effectively to thwart any untoward incident.

The first resolution was tabled by PPPP lawmaker Saira Shahliani which was about provision of first aid training in all schools and colleges while another resolution tabled by MQM lawmaker Syed Nadeem Razi urged the provincial government to initiate Security and Community Service measures in all educational institutions.  Both resolutions consumed 12 minutes of the proceeding and three members spoke on them.

In addition, another three private members’ resolutions appearing on the agenda were not taken up by the House. These resolutions were about paying tribute to the deceased students of Government Secondary School Daulatpur, who lost their lives in accident on way to school, extraditing the immigrants living illegally in the country and ensuring jobs opportunities for residents of District Sanghar in various Gas fields.

Meanwhile, the Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani rejected an Adjournment Motion (AM) after debate of 28 minutes which was submitted by MQM legislator Muhammad Dilawar Qureshi. The motion was about shortage of medicines in government hospitals of the province including Hyderabad. Earlier, the AM was opposed by the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Nisar Ahmed Khuhro.

Lawmakers spoke on seven Points of Order consuming 12 minutes of the proceeding. In addition, five out of six starred questions appearing on the agenda received oral reply from Minister for Finance, Syed Murad Ali Shah whereas lawmakers asked 31 supplementary questions.

The MQM lawmakers protested within the House for one minute when the Speaker rejected a motion moved by their party members Syed Khalid Ahmed, Muhammad Moin Aamir Pirzada and Muhammad Iftikhar Alam. The motion was about leave to introduce the Sindh Building Control (Amendment) Bill, 2016.

Furthermore, five private motions and eleven amendments in the rules proposed by the private members appearing on “Order of the Day” were not considered by the House. The sitting was adjourned by the Chair to meet again on March 4, 2016 (Friday).
