ANP slams delay in setting up PA committees

PESHAWAR: Parliamentary Leader of ANP, Sardar Hussain Babak on Wednesday expressed concern over delay in constituting of provincial assembly committees. 

Speaking at the KP assembly, he said in the assembly proceedings a number of questions are referred to house committees, but there exist no committee.
This practice reflects non-serious attitude of government in proper function of this august house, he alleged. Babak said on the one hand chief minister has appointed 32 parliamentary secretaries, but on the other hand there is no house committee. 
Babak raised the issue when the house agreed in referring of a question asked by Malik Riaz Khan to concerned committee. The question pertained to appointment of a class four employee in Bannu distirct. 
Replying to the objection, Provincial Minister Sardar Ayub clarified the parliamentary committees chairmen are working on voluntarily basis without getting any perk and privilege. 
The appointment of 32 parliamentary sectaries and their functioning will have no burden on the national exchequer, he added. 
In reply to a call attention notice of Amna Sardar about delay in bringing legislation on Acid and Burn Crime, Provincial Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs, Israrullah Gandpur apprised the house that the crime has been made part of Pakistan Penal Code and therefore there is no need of bringing any bill in the house in this connection. 
Earlier, Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Israrullah Gandapur Wednesday informed the provincial assembly that three persons have been arrested in kidnapping case of two girls in Peshawar and inquiry has been completed in the case.
Presenting report over kidnapping of girls from Hassan Gari area who were allegedly kept by the attackers at an empty house at Shami road, provincial minister informed the house that three persons have been arrested in the case and one is absconding. 
MPA Uzma Khan had raised the issue in the house on Tuesday and demanded strict action over the incident. Treasury had held out assurance of presenting detailed report of the case in the house on Wednesday. 
In the FIR, he continued, four persons were charged on the basis of statement of kidnapped girls after which police succeeded in arresting three and the fourth one is absconding.
He said the two sisters (14) and 7 years, were kidnapped on Sept 2, 2013 and were found unconscious outside their house on September 4. The girls were rushed to Khyber Teaching Hospital for treatment and were able  to record statement on 6th of September.
