PTI MNAs still ‘using’ official vehicles despite resignations


Despite the resignations of the 123 lawmakers of the PTI in the National Assembly, around 12 members of the party are still working in the capacity of chairmen of different standing committees.

Sources noted that with the resignations, the former legislators, who were no more heads of their respective panels, were still enjoying the facilities given to them.

A chairman of the NA standing committee is usually provided four employees and a car. Despite quitting their offices, the former PTI parliamentarians were still using the vehicles which were in fact the property of the lower house.

Sources said that the National Assembly Secretariat had decided to approach these former chairmen for the return of the cars and other official stuff in their use.

The PTI had more than 12 chairmen of the standing committees in the National Assembly. Among these were Imtiaz Chaudhry, civil aviation; Munazza Hassan, climate change; Amjad Ali Khan, defence; Imran Khattak, energy; Faizullah, finance; Malik Ehsaan, foreign affairs; Najeeb Haroon, housing; Ali Jadoon, IT; Raja Khurram Nawaz, interior; Mujahid Ali, parliamentary affairs; Junaid Akbar, planning and Sajid Khan, Safron.

On April 14, then National Assembly deputy speaker Qasim Suri, in his capacity as the acting speaker, had accepted the resignations of 123 PTI MNAs, who had accepted their party chairman Imran Khan’s appeal after his removal from the office of the prime minister through a no-confidence motion earlier this month.

The former premier had been claiming that his exit from the post – in a dramatic manner after he tried preventing the no-trust motion from being presented in the House on April 9 and only became possible an hour after April 10 had started – was part of a “foreign conspiracy” plotted in Washington to overthrow his government with the help of the opposition parties
