Federal Government prepares to take action on Sindh House Islamabad
ISLAMABAD: Sindh House Islamabad has been the center of political attention since yesterday as it was claimed that the opposition had reserved more than 10 members of the government here for the success of No-Confidence motion.
A day earlier, PML-Q leader and Speaker Punjab Assembly Chaudhary Pervez Elahi, while talking to a private TV channel said, 10 to 12 PTI members come to us for support but now they are missing, whom we are also looking for.
PTI ministers claim that these members have been housed by PPP in Sindh House Islamabad for horse trading, including four members of the National Assembly from Sindh. Government officials are calling the whole process a horse trading and buying/selling market.
According to sources, the rooms of Sindh House have already been booked for MNAs and MPAs of Sindh and all these matters are being looked into by PPP leader Sharjeel Inam Memon and PML-N leader Ataullah Tarar.
Security of Sindh House has been taken care of by Sindh Police Special Branch, which is being supervised by Maqsood Memon while the security management is being looked after by Col (retd) Babar of Bilawal House.
Sources claimed that besides the government members, 16 PML-N members are also present in Sindh House, members of PML-Q, PTI and other parties are also staying there for whom breakfast and other necessities are being procured from outside.
On the other hand, the Prime Minister, while taking notice of the whole situation, has decided to take steps for the recovery of the members of National Assembly, for which he has issued instructions to concerned authorities while the intelligence agencies have been ordered for strict monitoring of MNAs ahead of No-Confidence motion.
PPP has already claimed that in view of this situation, the government is planning an attack on Sindh House and if this happens then government will be responsible for the situation. PPP leader and former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said, “We are not in favor of bloodshed or aggravation of the situation. The government must refrain from aggressive measures.”
