MNAs are staying at Sindh House with their own choice: PPP

MNAs are from the opposition and our allies,” said PPP leader Faisal Karim Kundi at a press conference along with the party’s information secretary MNA Shazia Marri

ISLAMABAD: The Peoples Party (PPP) has claimed that some MNAs of opposition are currently staying at Sindh House for security reasons in the wake of threats by government ministers and the March 10 police raid on Parliament Lodges.

This development surfaced amid allegations by the government that the opposition had detained some ruling party lawmakers at Sindh House ahead of the vote on the no-confidence resolution against Prime Minister Imran Khan, and a statement by Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Parvez Elahi that around a dozen MNAs belonging to the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) had ‘gone missing’.

“Yes, the members of parliament are staying at Sindh House. Every member has a right to stay there. These members are from the opposition and our allies,” said PPP leader Faisal Karim Kundi at a press conference along with the party’s information secretary MNA Shazia Marri here on Wednesday.

Mr Kundi claimed these MNAs had been kept there as they feared they could be kidnapped. After a minister’s statement that the opposition could face a suicide attack and the police raid on Parliament Lodges, a number of MNAs felt unsafe.

Earlier in the day, PM Khan claimed that opposition leaders were sitting in Sindh House with “heaps of money” to purchase loyalties of treasury lawmakers, asking the election commission to take action against the alleged horse-trading.

Ports and Shipping Minister Ali Zaidi had also tweeted that nearly 400 Special Security Unit personnel of the Sindh police had been deployed at the Sindh House to protect the “bags” of money to be used to “bribe” the PTI MNAs.
