LAHORE - Provincial Minister Local Government and Community Development Department Sardar Dost Muhammad Khan Khosa seems to have made it certain for himself that he remains away from the House always when the Question-Hour is about the LG&CD; hence leaving either any other makeshift-arrangement minister or recently appointed Parliamentary Secretary bear the brunt of the members for incomplete, wrong, vague and no-answers to the questions. Parliamentary Secretary LG&CD Abdul Razzaq Dhiloon was at his best out of the worst-case scenarios when he did not add even a few lines to the written answers. And to all the questions, whether supplementary or written ones, he only added either of these three words, "underconsideration, very soon, Inshallah (Allah willing)". Opposition members, particularly Ijaz Shafi, Amna Ulfat and Dr Samia Amjad, averred that the ministers and parliamentary secretaries did not prepare themselves prior to coming to the House. "Besides the written answers given by the departments, they know nothing," they said. To rub salt into the injury, Amna Ulfat quizzed Dhiloon about the number of Union Councils in the Gulberg Town, but the worthy secretary remain mum. Numerous members even pointed out wrong answers. Charged-to-maximum level Quisling-turned-N-League member Ch Javed Ahmed came hard on the government when the once-pended question about the CCBs in Pakpattan was picked up. He asserted that the submitted reply was wrong and nothing was done on ground. Speaker Rana Muhammad Iqbal Khan said the answer had clerical mistakes, as Tehsil Municipal Administration Khanewal was inordinately written instead of TMA Pakpattan. Ch Javed asked Dhiloon to read the answer, where the latter failed, as he could not read the English portion of the answer. To Arifa Khalid Pervaiz's question about selling of imported canned-food in the city, Shaikh Ala-ud-Din and Khawaja Imran Nazir said the cans were being stamped in Dubai after their expiry. After this, the Punjab Assembly unanimously passed two resolutions regarding increase in honorarium of Maktab Schools' teachers and the provision of space to young lawyers in the districts bars. Treasury member Nighat Nasir Sheikh moved the resolution for increasing the monthly honorarium of Maktab Schools' teachers from Rs 250 to Rs 1000. However, Law Minister Rana Sana Ullah Khan suggested an amendment in the resolution that raise should be given up to Rs 500, as Rs 9 million were required for this. After this change, the resolution was passed. Treasury MPA Tayyaba Zamir suggested the government to provide some land to young lawyers in the districts' bars. Rana Sana, however, suggested that young lawyers could be given space, provided that there was any state land in the respective bars. However, the movers agreed to the minister's amendment and the House passed both resolutions unanimously. The House pended Farrah Deeba's resolution pertaining to evolving a comprehensive policy to start separate transport service for women. Nasim Lodhi's resolution regarding residential colony for employees of the Punjab Assembly was also kept pending on request by opposition member Aamir Sultan Cheema as the mover was not present. On the resolution of opposition MPA Samina Khawar Hayat, Rana Sana said the government had taken effective measures for controlling obscenity and vulgarity on stage dramas. "The government has also imposed ban on vulgar dances and objectionable dialogues of theatre dramas, besides taking to task the people promoting obscenity through these dramas," he added. Sports and Culture Minister Tanveer-ul-Islam also seconded the law minister and said that the last regime had promoted vulgarity in the name of enlightened moderation. However, this turned out to be light-hearted topic for the members, when all were willing to contribute. This came to an immediate halt when Rana Sana said the debate on the law and order situation should be started. Responding to a point of order by Dr. Asad Ashraf, the Excise and Taxation Minister Mian Mujtaba Shuja-ur-Rehman informed the house that they had very successful meeting with the transporters and there would be no strike by the public transport on Wednesday (today).
