Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Raza Rabbani speaking on the floor of the Upper House on Friday slammed the government over locking horns with Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani.
A day earlier, Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani placed a ban on Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry from attending the session until he apologised for his outburst against the opposition.
Following a cabinet meeting, Chaudhry quoted the prime minister saying: “Nobody has the right to disrespect any minister.” The minister added if the Senate chairman was unable to bring order to the House, then the government would have to think over its strategy.
Speaking on this issue, Rabbani said in the past no one had the audacity to say anything against the Senate chairman and National Assembly speaker. “Now questions are raised on the Senate chairman,” Rabbani added.
The PPP leader said the government had come into power on the platform of rooting out corruption, questioning why under trial cases were being debated on the floor.
