Later, the national assembly session, which continued for over ten hours, witnessed exchange of double-meaning derogatory and sarcastic remarks targeting the leadership of both the treasury and opposition benches.

PPP-P’s Abdul Qadir Patail, giving reference of Minister for Communication Murad Saeed’s speech, remarked if the government intends to present Uzair Baloch report then they would also prepare a JIT report mentioning medical report of a minister.

On it, PTI’s Atta Ullah asked PPP-P’s MNA to avoid making such remarks as others would also raise a finger at PPP-P chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. “It was just a trailer… I have many more things to say, so don’t go to that extent,” he warned.

The house meanwhile unanimously passed a resolution, moved by Minister of State Ali Muhammad recommending wherever the name of Last Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is written “Khatam-un-Nabiyeen” (meaning that Prophet Muhammad SAW is last of the Prophets sent by Allah) should be written along with it. The same resolution had also been passed by the Sindh Assembly.

The opposition and the government MNAs, in the debate on budget 2020-21, did not hesitate to target the leadership of each other. The government members made allout efforts to prove that the government had presented an excellent budget in available resources, while the opposition termed it an anti-people budget.

The opposition members criticized the PTI government for not increasing salaries and pensions and allocating insufficient budget for agriculture. The opposition members also blamed the government for allegedly not dealing with the corona crisis in an appropriate way.

He called for the resolution of Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions.

Adviser to PM on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan also remarked that Pakistan has a principled stance on Kashmir dispute that its resolution lies in plebiscite under the umbrella of United Nations. “Modi is a usurper and his policies have put the regional peace at stake,” he said.

PTI’s Saima Nadeem, criticizing the Sindh government, waved posters of animals' presence in the educational institutions. She strongly criticized the Sindh government for allegedly ignoring the education sector.
