PTI Govt Presents Four More Ordinances In NA Session

ISLAMABAD: The PTI government on Monday presented four more ordinances in the National Assembly amid hue and cry of the opposition members.

The session of the national assembly met under the chair of Speaker Asad Qaiser..

Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari says that Pakistan has opened Kartarpur Corridor out of religious inclusive and tolerance in contrast to Indian Supreme Court’s verdict on Babri Mosque.

Responding to a point of order, she said the Corridor has been opened up in honor of religious sentiments of the Sikh community.

The Minister said both PPP and PML-N are now saying that they too had envisioned opening up of the corridor, but now they are criticizing the move because the PTI has materialized this.

Communication Minister Murad Saeed says Hazara Motorway has been completed and will be opened on Friday.

Responding to a point of order, he said previous government had changed design of the motorway to benefit to some crony, which resulted in escalation of cost and timeframe for the completion of the project.

He said so far 10.8 billion rupees have been recovered due to hike in cost by changing designs of various highways, including Hakla-D.I. Khan and Multan-Sukkur motorways.

The House has been adjourned due to lack of quorum and it will now meet at 11 a.m. on Thursday.
