KARACHI: Sindh Assembly commenced its current session on Wednesday morning with a little disturbance as legislators belonging to MQM, chanting slogans, walked out after being refused to speak against alleged maltreatment of their workers in the city.
They, however, returned to the house within less an hour, citing the walkout a token to register their protest as well as concern about the issue related to political activists, including that of their own party members.
Sindh Assembly Speaker, Agha Siraj Durrani had earlier advised them to follow the rules and submit request for the issue to be taken up, amidst the fact that series of issues were already on the day’s agenda, including adoption of bills signed by the Governor, Dr. Ishrat
ul Ebad Khan.
The bills to be adopted by the provincial assembly included establishment of Altaf Hussain Universities in Karachi and Hyderabad respectively besides Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University in Benazirabad.
