In a first, Balochistan Assembly to get a daycare

June 13, 2019

Mahjabeen Sheran brought her child to the assembly on April 29 and was asked to leave.

Balochistan is going to become the first province with a daycare in its provincial assembly. 

Chief Minister Jam Kamal approved the construction of a daycare centre at the assembly, something the Balochistan government spokesperson said was a first. Parliament House in Islamabad already has a daycare.

The issue was brought up in Balochistan when a female MPA, Mahjabeen Sheran, was asked to leave the assembly for bringing her infant with her.

On April 29, Sheran, an MPA from Kech, brought her ill seven-month-old to the assembly because he could not be left at home. She was asked to leave.

According to Al Jazeera, Sheran has asked for a daycare to be set up at the assembly multiple times before but was turned down.
