Speaker calls for fixing wheat support price at Rs 2000 per 40kg
Govt reluctant to fix price recommended by Punjab Assembly
The ruckus and pandemonium continued in Punjab Assembly for the third consecutive day as both the treasury and opposition lawmakers refused to budge from their stance that left the Speaker with no option except to prorogue the session for indefinite time period.
Although, the session was earlier scheduled to continue for more than a week according to the tentative plan but Speaker had to prorogue it for the indefinite time due to the ongoing tussle between the government and the opposition. The commotion between the government and the opposition started from the day one as the production orders of teh opposition leader Hamza Shehbaz were not issued by the Speaker and the opposition termed it a ‘pressure’ on the Speaker directly came from the Prime Minister Imran Khan not to issue the said orders.
