The budget session of the Punjab Assembly has been delayed for over two hours, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Monday.

At present, the number of members present in the assembly are very low. Only 10 to 15 members are present in the House.

The treasury and opposition members exchanged hot words during the meeting of Punjab Assembly Business Advisory Committee.

PTI Mian Aslam Iqbal and PMLN Malik Ahmed Khan had a verbal brawl over the summoning of the IG in the PA.

Sources privy to the matter said that the government sought time to comply with the opposition's demands.

N-league members defended police action in PA while PTI members demanded an apology over the alleged torture by the police on PTI workers amid the Long March. 

Earlier in the day, Punjab cabinet approved the proposed budget for the fiscal year 2022-2023 with an estimated total budget outlay of Rs32.26 trillion.
