A meeting of Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) bigwigs, including Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and party president Nawaz Sharif, has agreed on legislation to create deterrence against contemptuous speeches against parliament, after condemning the scornful language used for the house by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan.
The prime minister arrived in the city to attend two separate meetings at Jati Umra.
Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif received the PM at the Lahore Airport yesterday.
In the first meeting, the participants condemned the “insults” hurled at parliament and it was unanimously agreed that all political parties would be taken onboard to introduce legislation to create strict deterrence against such acts.
The participants shared that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), along with many other parties, was willing to get onboard for such legislation.
The PNL-N leadership was updated on the pace of progress on development projects, especially the energy sector initiatives.
The meeting discussed ways to make up for the delays that were blamed on the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif and consequent loss of investor confidence in Pakistan economy.
In the second meeting, Hasil Bizenjo, Mahmud Khan Achakzai, Prime Minister Abbasi and Sharif discussed the fallout of the political manoeuvring in the Baluchistan Assembly and ways to minimise the damage it could cause to the party in the upcoming Senate elections.
