Suspension of Rules
On separate motions moved by Mr Umer Farooq and Mr Ahmad Khan under Rule 234 of the Rules of Procedure of the Provincial Assembly of the Punjab 1997, the House granted leave to suspend Rule 115 and other relevant rules of the Rules ibid, for taking up the following Resolutions, which were passed by the House:
Mr Umer Farooq moved a Resolution condemning the cancellation of Bol News Network Licence. The House was convinced that behind the closure of Bol News Network economic set back of thousands of journalists was under consideration, which would not be allowed to succeed under any circumstances. By doing so the Federal Government had attacked the freedom of press which was extremely condemnable. The House demanded the Federal Government and PEMRA to immediately withdraw the order of closure of Bol News Network.
Mr Ahmad Khan moved a Resolution condemning the extreme physical and mental violence inflicted on Mr Haleem Adil Sheikh, Leader of the Opposition in Sindh Assembly, by the imported Government. The imported Government brought him under extreme state of oppression and had been violating his rights as an opposition leader. But the night of darkness and oppression would soon come to an end under the leadership of Mr Imran Khan and the nation was near to get freedom from this outdated system. The House expressed full solidarity with Mr Haleem Adil Shaikh in these difficult times imposed upon him and demanded the Federal and Sindh Government to immediately withdraw false and baseless cases registered against him and to release him urgently.
The House was then adjourned at 05:40 p.m. to meet on Monday, September 12, 2022 at 03:00 p.m.
