The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Saturday requisitioned a session of the National Assembly (NA) over party president Shehbaz Sharif’s arrest.

A PML-N delegation headed by Raja Zafarul Haq and comprising Sardar Ayaz Sadiq and Murtaza Javed Abbasi visited NA Speaker Asad Qaiser’s residence to submit the requisition.

The requisition demands that a debate be held in the Lower House over the arrest of the leader of the opposition.

“Shehbaz was arrested without any reason,” Raja Zafarul Haq told media after submitting the requisition. Former NA speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq said, “We have requisitioned the NA session after consultation with the opposition. “Hoping that a session will be called in the next two days, he said, “The requisition has officially been submitted on October 6 which means the session has to be called within 14 days. However, we have requested the speaker to not wait for the entire 14 days and call the session as soon as possible. I will try to contact Defence Minister Pervez Khattak and Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and speak to them about not creating any hindrance in this regard,” he added.

“Shehbaz was called to record statement in the Saaf Pani case and detained in the Aashiana Housing case. This is a case in which Shehbaz himself cancelled the contract and ordered anti-corruption unit to conduct inquiry,” Ayaz said, adding that not a single penny of the government was lost. “This is political victimisation … statements from ministers prove it,” he asserted.
