The opposition, led by members such as Rana Aftab and Rana Shahbaz, voiced their outrage against the ongoing police actions they deemed as terroristic and oppressive. Rana Aftab, addressing the assembly, declared that unless the alleged terrorism against them ceased, they would not participate in the proceedings.

He insisted that the IG Punjab be summoned to the House for an explanation. Rana Shahbaz added fuel to the fire by accusing the police of the theft, claiming they had stolen jewellery from homes. The chair responded by ordering the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs to enter the House. Despite these efforts, the opposition stood firm, chanting slogans against what they called “thuggery” and the “government of batons and bullets.”

During the question hour, opposition members gathered around the Speaker’s dais, raising slogans and ultimately walking out of the assembly. Rana Aftab, expressing his thoughts during a point of order, said that the atmosphere of terror had become so intense that even breathing had become difficult for them. He threatened to obstruct the proceedings if the government continued to suppress their voices.

Rana Shahbaz, speaking on the same matter, insisted that for the first time in history, the police were engaging in such blatant acts of theft and oppression. He demanded that both the Chief Minister and the IG Punjab be summoned to the House to answer for these actions. Following the uproar, the interim Speaker adjourned the session for ten minutes.
