Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz has said that the people were waiting for the budget, 24NewsHD TV channel reported Monday.

“We will take every constitutional step," he said after the PA speaker put off the budget session.

The speaker is violating the Punjab assembly constitution, Hamza said adding that the law will take its course such anti-people acts.

Speaker Parvez Elahi postponed the budget session for today. The session started six hours behind schedule as the opposition PTI raised the demand for quashing the cases against its lawmakers and seeking an apology from the top cop for police mishandling of senior members. The session was scheduled to be held at 2:00 pm. 

The assembly resumed its proceedings for a few minutes with Speaker Parvez Elahi in the chair. The session had a 10-minute break after the chair issued directives to oust Attaullah Tarar from the house.

The speaker stressed that the atmosphere will not be conducive if Attaullah Tarrar does not leave the house. The government member sprang into action to defend Attaullah Tarrar, causing the 10-minute break to extend to almost an hour.
