The State Minister for Ports and Shipping, Nabeel Ahmed Gabol has said that most of the parliamentarians cannot attend sessions of the assembly nor give their full attention to proceedings of the House because a lot of them have two wives to keep. Quite a genuine excuse One is surprised why this point was not considered by the CRC while formulating the 18th Amendment. Perhaps a ban could have been imposed on the candidates contesting the elections to have more than one wife? -DR IRFAN ZAFAR, Islamabad, April 22.
