The Special Assistant to Prime Minister Pakistan and Chief Whip in the National Assembly, Amir Dogar, on Thursday visited the Sindh Assembly building on the special invitation by Opposition Leader Haleem Adil Sheikh.
Sheikh and other PTI lawmakers briefed him about the undemocratic attitude of the Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani by not including the members of the opposition parties in the Public Accounts Committee and in standing committees.
Dogar speaking to the media persons said that it was totally undemocratic tactics by the biased speaker, who according to him, on one hand, did not allow Sheikh and other leaders of opposition parties during the concluding budget session of the provincial assembly while on the other they were being denied their democratic right to be members of the standing committees.
Dogar said that in the National Assembly every opposition party had representatives in all the standing committees, adding that as many as 20 committees were being headed by the MNAs of opposition parties.
He said that he would expose the true faces of the so-called champions of democracy in the next session of the National Assembly. He said that each committee in NA had three members from opposition parties.
