ISLAMABAD (DNA) – The opposition walked out of the National Assembly on Tuesday over passing bills through presidential ordinance without presenting them before the House.The rumpus started when Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Nafisa Shah protested against the bill which was tabled by the treasury benches.The PPP leader said 11 presidential ordinances have been issued and privileges of chairmen of standing committees have been stamped out.

Standing committee chairman holds the authority to summon committee meeting, but a condition to take speaker’s permission has been imposed on it as well, she added.
