Amidst an uproar created by the opposition, the National Assembly (NA) on Friday adopted the resolution tabled by Federal Minister for Law and Justice Azam Nazir Tarar, calling for an extension in the duration of seven ordinances by 120 days, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

Members of the opposition, mostly belonging to the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC), erstwhile PTI, kept making noise during voting on the resolution.

Hitting out at the opposition, the minister, in a reference to ex-PTI chairman’s Imran Khan’s letter to the IMF, said that those who wrote letters to the money-lending organization were not the country’s well-wishers and wanted its annihilation. “Will they please tell me which party they belong to?” he questioned, adding that the status of these opposition members was not yet clear.
