PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly Friday witnessed pandemonium after the exchange of sloganeering between the opposition and treasury benches legislators.
Speaking on a point of order the parliamentary leader of PML-N, Sardar Aurangzeb Nalotha accused the provincial government of pushing the opposition to wall and negating development schemes under the annual development programme (ADP).
He demanded the constitution of a house panel to review the situation and create consensus in the connections with the development schemes in the constituencies of the opposition legislators.
He further demanded divisional-wise distribution of the ADP funds so every area of the province will get its due share.
Criticizing the discriminatory attitude of the provincial government in development schemes, he attributed to the injustice of the justice party.
The remarks of the opposition legislator prompted the Speaker to switch off his mike.
In response to the scathing criticism of Sardar Nalotha, Advisor to Chief Minister Mushtaq Ghani took the floor to reply. But, other PML-N legislators also joined their parliamentary leader in protest and chanted slogans against the PTI chief Imran Khan.
Amid the exchange of slogans between the legislators of PML-N and PTI, the Speaker announced the adjournment of the proceedings of the house till February 20, 2017.—APP
