ISLAMABAD: After differences between Member of National Assembly (MNA) Marvi Memon and Senator Hummayun Mandokhel on a room allotment in the Parliament Lodges, Deputy Chairman Senate Jan Muhammad Jamali decided to seal the room on Saturday.

Mandokhel along with the Jamali, CDA officials and the police reached Memon's flat to vacate it.

However, after a verbal clash with her servants, Jamali ordered the police to seal the room till Tuesday.

Senator Mandokhel claimed he has the papers of allotment and Memon is illegally living in the flat, which was alloted to her father, and who is retired now.

Memon on the other hand said she was alloted the flat two years ago by the National Assembly. However, the flat was double alotted to the senator who has tried to forcibly break down the door in the past as well.

She informed that the matter was taken to the level of the Senate and the National Assembly and it was decided that the flat will remain in her possession and she has proof of that.

Memon said that her servants were also harassed and she will take legal action in this issue.

The keys to the room have been handed to Marvi Memon’s father, Nisar Memon with the room sealed till Tuesday.

The parliamentarian who is currently not in Islamabad tweeted on the issue:

Punjab Governor Salman Taseer also tweeted on the subject:

Azeem | 11 years ago | Reply You forget she is also an accomplished business women. She was the person who launched Trakker (Pvt.) Limited in Pakistan. I remember her from many years ago when she came as a guest speaker in my class. brilliant women. What's happenning is sad and petty arguments over a flat make no sense. In my view the matter should have been amicable resolevd to start with.
