The National Assembly (NA) on Tuesday rejected a bill seeking to change the uniforms of gatekeepers of private hotels and restaurants across the country.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA from Karachi Alamgir Khan moved the bill, which was opposed by the treasury benches as well as the opposition parties.
The PTI MNA said the uniform of hotel gatekeepers was first introduced by Britishers to enslave ‘lower class people’.
However, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhary was the first lawmaker who rejected the proposal, saying that there are other platforms to discuss such matters.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Syed Naveed Qamar also rejected the proposal.
