Punjab lawmakers retract resignations after Sialvi-Shehbaz negotiations

LAHORE (Sarzameen News)- After a number of provincial lawmakers expressed their dissatisfaction with the government, the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in Punjab turned the tide by holding successful negotiations with aide Hameeduddin Sialvi.

MPA Muhammad Khan Baloch was among the legislators to draw back resignation. The meeting between Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif and Sialvi resulted in burying the hatchet as the trend of retracting resignations has started.

Baloch had sent his resignation to the Punjab Assembly Speaker on the call of Sialvi as a group of disgruntled lawmakers in Punjab showed concerns on how the government handled Khatm-e-Nabuwwat issue.

He himself reached the parliament to collect his resignation back from the speaker. At this occasion, he talked to media and told that the matter has now been resolved. Baloch remained hesitant to tell anything to media.

Last Thursday, Sialvi had postponed the sit-in call against the Punjab government on the request of Shehbaz Sharif who formed a six-member committee to probe Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah upon his rift within the party.

It is worth recalling that the religious cleric had warned the Punjab government to impose sharia law within a period of seven days or else their group will shut down the entire province.
