ISLAMABAD: After drawing the opposition’s ire for bulldozing 13 bills during the National Assembly session, Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak said the use of ordinances is allowed in the Constitution.
The National Assembly session continued today amid a war of words between the treasury and the opposition benches on the Azadi March.
Meanwhile, PML-N leader Khawaja Asif in his address continued his onslaught against the government for hurriedly passing the 13 ordinances in the assembly.
Asif, in his address once again deplored the government’s actions, saying that the Constitution was violated in the assembly yesterday.
A new record was made in the National Assembly session on Thursday as 13 bills were approved during a single session.
As members of the opposition chanted ‘Ordinance unacceptable’ and tore copies of the bills presented in the parliament, ministers and parliamentary secretaries kept on presenting bills.
