Qaiser, Bilawal discuss parliamentary committee on coronavirus

National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser on Friday telephoned Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and discussed formation of parliamentary committee on coronavirus outbreak.

According to sources, Asad Qaiser termed Bilawal’s statement of not doing politics and point scoring and working with the federal government to combat novel coronavirus as satisfactory, during the telephonic conversation.

The NA speaker also took the PPP chairman in confidence on the formation of parliamentary committee over COVID-19 outbreak.

He said that the unity of opposition parties on national issues is very important. To NA Speaker’s demand, Bilawal assured him of forwarding names for the parliamentary committee.

Asad Qaiser said that national unity is needed to prevent coronavirus, adding that other political parties will also be contacted and consulted on the formation of a joint parliamentary committee.

The parliamentary committee that will include members from both government and opposition will also put forward suggestions after review.
