Islamabad: Two PTI National Assembly members have approached the Islamabad High Court against the eviction of residences from Parliament Lodges.

Shaukat Ali Bhatti from Hafizabad and Amir Sultan from Jhang challenged the vacancy notices. Secretary National Assembly and Chairman CDA were made parties in the petition filed in the Islamabad High Court.

The petition seeks annulment of the CDA’s June 2 and 3 vacancy letter, ordering them to stay as long as they are eligible to vacate, according to the rules.

The petition contends that the elected members are members of the National Assembly and the CDA has given notice to vacate the residence without giving any reason. Until new elections are held, the National Assembly is functional and they can reside for official work.

According to the petitioner, the family was living in the house but the belongings of the house were thrown out and some things are missing. The petitioners belong to remote areas. Canceling the residence is an attempt to stop the official function of the assembly. As MNAs, there is no special residence in Islamabad to deal with the affairs of the assembly.
