ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah has on Tuesday lashed out at empty chairs in the Lower House and suggested a punishment for the absentees.

Speaking on the floor of the lower house, he said that it is unfortunate that parliamentarians from the government benches and the ministers are showing less interest in the proceedings of the Parliament.

The leader of the opposition said that from the day one the opposition is supporting the government on major issues, however the parliamentarians from the treasury benches need to show up and take part in proceedings of the Parliament.

Khursheed Shah said that the absentees should be punished by asking them to stand on their chairs besides suspending several.

The PPP leader said that strong parliament will give a good and strong message to the masses and their trust in democracy will increase and no one will dare to look towards the parliament.
