An­other PML-N leader Ma­lik Shakir Bashir Awan lauded in­cen­tives, of­fered in the bud­get for agri­cul­ture sec­tor. He de­manded zero-rated duty on im­port of ma­chin­ery.

He said the in­ter­est on agri­cul­ture loans, taken by Thal farm­ers, should be abol­ished and elec­tric­ity tar­iff of Khushab farm­ers should be fixed. Uni­ver­sity cam­pus should be es­tab­lished in Khushab dis­trict, he added.

At the very out­set of the pro­ceed­ings, Shireen Mazari of Pak­istan Tehreek-e-In­saf drew the at­ten­tion of the Speaker to­wards the in­ci­dent of thrash­ing of Marvi Sarmid by JUI-F Sen­a­tor Hafiz Ham­dul­lah dur­ing a TV show and urged the speaker to do some­thing for safe­guard­ing the pres­tige of the wom­en­folk.

Speaker Sar­dar Ayaz Sadiq said ev­ery­one should re­spect the women folk, ir­re­spec­tive of their po­lit­i­cal af­fil­i­a­tion.—APP
