Member of Provincial Assembly (MPA) and veteran journalist Syeda Maimanat Mohsin, popularly known as Jugnu Mohsin protested in the office of Deputy Commissioner Okara for the release of her constituency funds, 24NEWS HD TV, reported on Saturday.
A large number of workers also arrived with her and recorded their protest peacefully.
Independent MPA of PP 184 protested against the suspension of funds from Deputy Commissioner Office Okara.
Speaking to the media on the occasion, Jugnu Mohsin said that, I had said from the day first that I am an independent member of Punjab Assembly and will not give up my independent status at all.
If you are a resident of Okara and have voted for those who are in the ruling party, you can put pressure on them and ask them to give you the rights and these are the funds for the development of Okara, she added.
But due to jealousy, they have blocked their funds as well as mine and they say in Punjabi that they will not play or let them play.
In response to a question, Jugnu Mohsin said to the government, "Don't stop our funds, you must stop the inflation bomb, you stop the price of petrol, you stop the price of flour, but don't stop our funds, you stop the price of electricity, you stop the price of vegetables" don't withhold our funds.
Referring to the talks in the DC Office, she said that we have been told to talk the hi-ups in the government. She warned that if we are not listened to, then we will go to Lahore to protest for the release of our funds.
