The National Assembly is expected to pass the Pakistan Army (Amendment) Bill, 2020 on Saturday. The amendments have been made by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government in the centre.
Interestingly, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has extended its support to the government.
The Pakistan Peoples Party raised some reservations, following which the bill’s draft was sent to the National Assembly and Senate’s defence committees on Friday.
A joint session of the two National Assembly and Senate committees approved the amendments later in the day.
SAMAA TV’s anchorperson Amber Shamsi discussed on her show Sawal as to why the two major rivals of the ruling party were supporting it on the bill.
The anchorperson said that supporters of the two parties were also displeased with their maneuvering and expressing their disapproval on the social media.
She invited PPP’s Qamar Zaman Kaira and PML-N’s Mohammad Zubair to answer some questions relating to the matter. Watch the video to know what they said on the show.
