Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) leader Mehmood Khan Achakzai postponed his speech in the National Assembly on Wednesday on the request of Speaker Ayaz Sadiq.
According to sources, Achakzai wanted to speak upon matters related to national security and had brought with him a number of related documents for referencing as well. Achakzai requested the speaker to let him speak but Sadiq wrote back “please no” on the paper chit Achakzai had forwarded to him.
Federal Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar would have responded to Achakzai’s statements had he been permitted to speak, sources said.
While talking to media after the session concluded, Achakzai stated that he came to the National Assembly after preparing his arguments.
He added, “I did not say anything wrong about the security institutions in my previous speech as well.”
Achakzai said that the speaker dismissed the session before the set time and postponed it till an undefined period.
The PkMAP leader headed to the NA speaker’s chamber after the session concluded.
