LAHORE: Speaker Rana Muhammad Iqbal has barred Parliamentary Secretary for Tourism Mian Tahir Pervaiz from attending Punjab Assembly session for two days.

The lawmaker misbehaved with Personal Staff Officer to the Speaker Mian Muhammad Jamil for not making sitting arrangements for his guests at Speaker’s box.

The parliamentary secretary twisted officer’s arm when he refused to oblige him citing limited capacity of the Speaker’s box. This happened outside the Speaker’s chamber under the gaze of many lawmakers. A security guard later intervened to save the officer.  

The Assembly staff later had a meeting with Speaker who promised to take action against the PML-N MPA from Faisalabad. –Staff Reporter
