The membership of the both the legislators suspended under clauses 21 and 33 of Parliament (Joint Sitting) Rules 1973.

During president’s speech to the joint sitting of the parliament on Thursday afternoon, both Jamshed Dasti and Iqbal Khan staged noisy protest and used threatening language near the speaker’s dais. They also blew whistles and chanted objectionable slogans violating sanctity of the house with their unpleasant behavior.
