Members of the main opposition PPP assembly members have been suspended due to dogs in Pakistan. The angry Sindh High Court has suspended Faryal Talpur and Malik Asad Sikander of the PPP from the Punjab Provincial Assembly. For this reason, Senator Sherry Rehman of the party has also raised a strong objection. He described this decision as ‘worrisome’. Actually, the anger of the court was on the seventh sky due to the continuous increase in incidents of dog bite cases in the province.
The Sukkar Peeth of Sindh High Court had on Thursday suspended the membership of these two leaders. The court took this decision in view of the increasing incidents of dogs being bitten by people in their constituencies. The court directed the Pakistan Election Commission to suspend membership of the Provincial Assembly (MPA) from Rata Dero and Jamshoro. Talpur and Assad MPA were elected from both these constituencies.
Fail to fulfill your responsibility
The High Court said that the increasing incidence of dog bites in these constituencies shows that these members have failed to provide facilities to poor people in their constituencies. In view of this, membership of the elected MPA of Rata Dero and Jamshoro is suspended. The bench directed that a copy of the instruction should be sent to the Election Commission so that a notification in this regard is issued soon. The court has also warned members of other constituencies in this regard. The court has also clearly stated to the secretary of Sindh assembly not to disobey the order of the court.
PPP raised objections
After this decision, Bilawal Bhutto’s PPP (Pakistan People’s Party) has raised objections. Party senator Sherry Rehman questioned in the media, ‘Don’t the Prime Minister bite dogs in Imran’s constituency? The dignity of Parliament should be maintained. No member wants such incidents to happen in their area. Presenting the figures, he said that in Punjab, more than 90 thousand people were bitten by dogs in 2020, but no one raised any question. He asked if the membership of the Chief Minister of Punjab or any other member has been suspended due to the bite of dogs.
