Senate adjourns proceedings of house till tomorrow

Two bills were laid before the Senate today. These included: the Constitution Amendment Bill, 2023 and the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2023.

The chair referred the bills to the standing committees concerned.

On a point of order, Leader of Opposition Shehzad Waseem voiced concerns over reports that the government has allowed FIA to arrest former Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin on charges of sedition.

Responding to him, Minister of State for Law Shahadat Awan said FIA is an independent institution and it has completed its inquiry as per the law. He said everybody should have confidence in law and constitution, and if a person has committed a crime, he should be awarded punishment.

On this, the opposition members resorted to rumpus and the chair adjourned the proceedings of the house till ten am tomorrow.
