Crucial Punjab Assembly session postponed till June 6

Description:

MPAs reached the PA to attend the meeting previously scheduled to begin at 12:30pm. However, the session couldn"t be started on time as the lawmakers were stopped from entering the premises.

Security had been tightened around the Assembly amid rising political tensions in Lahore on Sunday morning. PA Speaker Pervaiz Elahi called the session today, while cancelling the previous date of the assembly session scheduled for May 30.

 

The political situation intensified Sunday morning with the arrest of PA Director General for Parliamentary Affairs Rai Mumtaz after the announcement of an emergency session. The police was directed to stay on high alert and a heavy police force was deputed in the surroundings of the provincial assembly.

Police also barricaded different spots on Lahore"s Mall Road, including the routes leading from CM House and Aiwan-e-Iqbal to the PA.

Earlier, the administration had closed the doors of the PA, while barbed wires were placed in front of the assembly building. Punjab Assembly staff said that even they are not allowed to enter the Assembly building.

Due to strict arrangements, even the security team of Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz wasn"t allowed to enter the assembly. Meanwhile, PML-N decided to send only 15 to 20 MPAs inside the PA in the first phase as soon as the gates open.

Sources said that the allied parties" members would take media representatives inside the building due to reports of presence of unauthorised individuals in the assembly.

"Pervaiz Elahi has brought goons from Gujrat"

Earlier, the security team of Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz was barred from entering the House. Meanwhile, PML-N leader Ata Tarar said that MPAs and media were not allowed to enter the provincial assembly.

“Speaker Pervaiz Elahi has brought goons from Gujrat,” he claimed, adding that “some people” were brought to the House yesterday night.

“You [Pervaiz Elahi] are disrespecting the House,” the PML-N leader added. He said they would enter the assembly accompanied by media persons.

He maintained that they have submitted a no-confidence motion against the speaker as per the Constitution and vowed to challenge the speaker’s “illegal actions” in court.

Responding to a question, the PML-N leader said that the ECP has not de-notified the 25 defiant lawmakers of the House so far.

No-trust moves against Elahi, deputy speaker on session"s agenda

The PA session was due to begin at 12:30pm with the no-confidence motion against the speaker and deputy speaker on the agenda. However, session couldn"t be started as yet. 

PTI and PML-Q submitted the no-trust motion against PA Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari, while PML-N submitted the motion against PA Speaker Elahi under Article 127 of the Constitution of Pakistan.

A very noisy PA session is expected as the temperature is high on both sides.

Police detain PA parliamentary affairs DG

Punjab police arrested Punjab Assembly Director General for Parliamentary Affairs Rai Mumtaz in the wee hours of Sunday after a PA session was summoned ahead of the scheduled date. 

Mumtaz"s family alleged that the police raided their house and shifted him to an unknown location.

The Punjab Assembly spokesperson confirmed reports of Mumtaz"s detention, saying that the police leaped the walls of the DG"s house. He said that the houses of PA Secretary Muhammad Khan Bhatti and Coordination Secretary Inayatullah were also raided.

The spokesperson further stated that they also have video evidence of the raids on assembly official"s residences. He also accused police of vandalism during the raids.
