Parliamentary committee session to be held on Wednesday for caretaker CM Punjab

LAHORE: An agreement has been reached to call a session of the parliamentary committee on Wednesday in relation to the appointment of a caretaker chief minister in Punjab.

Earlier, name of former chief secretary Nasir Khosa was agreed upon, although Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf took back the name amid sever criticism.

The names which were suggested by the PTI later on also became controversial as party spokesman Fawad Chaudhry and Mahmood-ur-Rasheed disagreed over them.

Sources said that the PTI will have opposition leader Mahmood-ur-Rasheed, Sibtain Khan, Shoaib Siddiqui in the parliamentary committee , whereas, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has selected Malik Ahmed Khan, Rana Sanaullah, Khawaja Imran Nazir in the committee.

According to sources, the session on Wednesday will be held at 2 PM, in which the PTI will pitch Ayaz Amir and Hasan Askari’s name.

The PML-N will suggest Justice (retd) Sair Ali and former Naval chief Admiral (retd) Zakaullah’s name.

The parliamentary committee has to reach a decision in this regard on June 6; failure to do so will lead the matter to the Election Commission of Pakistan.
