ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) on Monday staged a walk out from the National Assembly against killing of its two workers during a rally in Azad Kashmir.

The PPP lawmakers entered the lower house of the parliament wearing black arm bands and chanting anti-govt slogans.

Opposition Leader in the National Assembly and PPP stalwart Syed Khurshid Shah lamented that the government has maintained its old policies. “Rulers think nobody is able to hold them accountable.Despite our efforts, policy of reconciliation could not move forward,” he said.

The opposition leader also criticized the government for what he said act of terrorism carried out by the rulers against the PIA workers.”Similar course was adopted in Azad Kashmir,” Shah said.

Khurshid Shah said it was deplorable that some ministers were dictating the prime minister through their statements.

National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq asked Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid and PML-N lawmaker Shiekh Aftab to woo the opposition lawmakers.

However, the information minister refused to budge saying Khurshid Shah has presented a charge-sheet against him.
