PTI Lawmakers to return their Salaries for their Absence due Sit-in, Imran
ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has announced the party’s lawmakers will return the salaries of the period they boycotted the National Assembly sessions.
While addressing the media after a party meeting in Islamabad on Thursday, PTI Chairman Imran Khan said the salaries received by the legislators during the time they were absent from the National Assembly during the 126-day-long sit-in in Islamabad would be deposited back with the government.
The PTI had announced boycotting all assembly proceedings in August 2014 after launching its sit-in campaign in Islamabad against the government over alleged rigging in the May 2013 general elections. A week later, the lawmakers submitted their resignations, which were not accepted.
After a seven-month absence, the party returned to the National Assembly fold in April this year after the government accepted its demand for setting up a judicial commission to probe rigging claims.
