KARACHI - The Sindh Assembly session, which is commencing from Thursday, likely to witness uproar over lawlessness in Karachi, non-allotment of the opposition seats to the estranged allies of the ruling PPP as well as assent of the governor to the recently passed Sindh Peoples Local Government Act 2012. On the recommendation of the Sindh Chief Minister, the governor has convened the Sindh Assembly session on November 15 (today) 10am with Speaker Sindh Assembly Nisar Ahmed Khuhro in the chair.The assent of the governor to the recently passed controversial Sindh Peoples Local Government Bill 2012 is also part of the order of the day which would be discussed in the Sindh Assembly today. The assent of the governor to the local government law would likely to invite uproar and protests of the opposition lawmakers including the PML-F of Pir Pagara, PML-Likeminded and one group of PML-Q, ANP and NPP, who parted ways with the government over unilateral step of ruling PPP of passing controversial Sindh Peoples Local Government Bill 2012. Besides, the assent of the governor to the Habib University Bill 2012 and Sindh Teachers Education Development Authority Bill 2012, the introduction and consideration of ‘Jinnah Sindh Medical University Bill 2012 is also part of the today’s agenda for the consideration of the Sindh Assembly. Meanwhile, the NPP MPA Arif Mustafa Jatoi’s resolution regarding disapproval of recently promulgated ‘Sindh Civil Servants (Amendment) ordinance 2012’ is also part of agenda of today’s session. On the other side, the Sindh Assembly secretariat has yet not allotted the separate seats to the parliamentary parties including PML-F, PML-Likeminded, ANP and NPP, whose parliamentary submitted separate applications for allotment of the opposition seats in the house.The lawmakers of PML-F, PML-Q, PML-L, ANP and NPP had staged protest and sit-in in front of Speaker’s rostrum in the Sindh Assembly during the passage of the Sindh Peoples Local Government Bill in last session and were continually chanting slogans against the non-allotment of the separate seats on opposition side. However, the governor Sindh has not yet accepted the resignations of the ministers of estranged allies, so it is expected that the Speaker may not allot the separate seats to the ministers in today’s session of Sindh Assembly. Sources in the Sindh Assembly secretariat confirmed to The Nation that they were making arrangements of allotment of separate seats for the MPAs of the PML-F, NPP, ANP and PML-Likeminded. Sources, however not confirmed that whether the Speaker would allot the separate seats to the MPAs or not in today’s session of Sindh Assembly.When contacted, MPA Ms. Marvi Rashdi of PML-F told The Nation that they were not informed whether separate seats have been allotted to them or not. ‘It is clear that if Speaker not allotted separate seats on opposition side they would record protest in the Sindh Assembly’, she said, adding that they will not sit silent during the consent of controversial local government law. The lawlessness and killings of the people in the city would also be remained alive in today’s Sindh Assembly session as walkouts as provincial legislature likely to witness walkout and protests in the house today.It may be noted that the MQM lawmakers staged walkouts in the Senate and National Assembly sessions over the Karachi’s unrest, so they may take same stance and would stage walkout of the house in protest today.
