3 PTI MNAs among 7 barred from NA for ‘unparliamentary’ behaviours
National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser on Wednesday barred seven MNAs, including three from the PTI, from entering the House after budget books and expletives were thrown during yesterday’s session.
In a tweet, the NA speaker said that members who disrupted the session during Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif’s speech have been barred from entering the House as their behaviour was “unparliamentary” and “inappropriate”.
