NA session adjourned for 20 mins as opposition, treasury create ruckus

National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri adjourned on Tuesday the National Assembly sitting for 20 minutes after both members of treasury and opposition created chaos on the floor.

The MNAs continued to protest and make noise as Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif tried to speak. This is the third time his speech was interrupted by noise and protests by the treasury in the ongoing session during which the Lower House is supposed to debate over the proposed budget.

Suri told protesting MNAs to "resolve their issues" before the sitting starts again.

The budget was announced by Minister of State for Revenue Hammad Azhar last week. Since then, two sittings have been held and all have been adjourned without any debate due to noisy protests. Today is the fourth sitting of the ongoing session.

More details to follow.
