Opposition stages walkout from Sindh Assembly over LG ordinance

The Sindh Assembly resembled a fish market after members of opposition and government exchanged heated arguments over local bodies (LB) ordinance on Friday.
The ruckus started after the opposition chanted slogans and tore copies of the agenda.
The opposition members boycotted the session and staged sit-in outside Sindh assembly.
As soon as the session began, the opposition parties tried to pass a unanimous resolution against the local government ordinance. The speaker didn’t permit after which the opposition stood and exchanged hot words with the government officials.
The opposition accused government of not holding a debate over the ordinance, adding that the conduct of speaker was also disappointing.
Earlier on Monday, the MQM lawmakers held a rally from Sindh Assembly against the amendments in Sindh local government act 2013.
Terming it a black law, the MQM demanded to revoke the amendments and change the law after consulting all the political parties.
