ISLAMABAD: Opposition leaders protested on Wednesday after they were not allowed to present a resolution in the National Assembly.

Even before the NA Speaker Asad Qaiser had announced the break for namaz, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam leader Asad Mahmood started leading the prayers in front of the speaker’s dais.

The prayers were joined by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders. Mahmood had earlier asked the House speaker permission to present resolution.

This was the first time that leaders prayed together in the Assembly.

The opposition leaders wanted to present a resolution against federal minister Faisal Vawda, but the speaker passed the mic to Finance Minister Asad Umar to present a bill before the house.

The opposition protested the move, with Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari among those protesting.
