ISLAMABAD:


Nearly a dozen of recently retired members of the upper house of parliament are yet to vacate their official accommodations even after the passing of a grace period of two weeks, ending on March 25.


As many as 10 senators belonging to Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Awami National Party (ANP) and independent senators from Baluchistan and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) have yet to vacate luxurious suites allotted to them at Parliament Lodges – the official residential apartments for the parliamentarians.



These senators retired on March 11. While they were given a grace period of another two weeks, ending on March 25, but despite passage of the deadline 10 retired senators still occupy their official accommodations.

The former senators are: Babar Khan Ghauri of MQM (suite E-205), Shiralla Malik of MQM (suite A-202), Abdul Haseeb Khan of MQM (suite G-109), Haji Adeel Khan of ANP (suite F-412), Sardar Ali Khan of PPP (suite C-304), Gul Muhammad Lot of PPP (suite G-411), Gulzar Ahmad Khan of PPP (suite H-04), independent senators from Baluchistan Nawab Akbar Magsi (suite A-05), Idrees Safi (suite F-301) and Haji Khan Afridi (suite A-301).

According to the document available with The Express Tribune, some 40 out of 52 senators – retired on March 11 upon completion of a six-year term at the upper house of parliament – were allotted accommodations at the Parliament Lodges.

Eleven of the retired senators have been re-elected to the house for another term and they will be retaining the previously allotted accommodations. The remaining 29 were supposed to vacate the accommodation by March 11.
