Islamabad: The opposition leadership continuing their protests against the remarks made by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar against their respective parties have stopped their members from attending the National Assembly session on Thursday.

The PPP affiliated opposition leader in NA, Khursheed Shah, directed the party members individually via telephonic conversation from his chamber to avoid entering the lower house.

On the other hand, PTI’s prominent leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi also ordered his party MPs to skip the NA session till the interior minister takes back the controversial statement.

The opposition members gathered in the NA’s lobby and did not attend the lower house meeting till Chaudhry Nisar takes back his negative remarks regarding the opposition parties.
