Murad Saeed-Javaid Latif scuffle resolved amicably

ISLAMABAD: (APP) The matter of scuffle between members of the National Assembly (MNAs) Mian Javed Latif and Murad Saeed was resolved Thursday amicably through a conciliatory committee.

Both the members realized that the situation must have not arisen as they reiterated to show restraint in future to avoid recurrence of any unpleasant situation in wake of insulting or derogatory remarks about fellow members.

"What happened on that day was unsuitable. I regret my words and apologize," Mian Javed Latif said for what he had stated a few days back about Murad Saeed as well as the leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI).

He said a constructive change was needed in the behaviour of the members and everybody should ensure respect for other members and their party leaders.

Murad Saeed said the members come to the House to represent their people and play a role for the resolution o their problems and not to abuse one another. "I promise to this House to ensure respectable behaviour and continue struggle for the resolution of people's problems."

He also reiterated to participate in the House's proceedings more constructively as he stated that none of the national level leaders, no matter from which party, could be a traitor.

A committee comprising MNAs Qaisar Jamal, Sher Akbar Khan, Shah Ji Gul Afridi and a couple of others had resolved the issue emerged after some insulting remarks by one member and assault by the other that had led to a scuffle in the Parliament building but outside the House.

MNAs Ijaz Jakhrani, Mian Mannan and Arif Alvi lauded the gesture and said it was an honour for the House that members had realized their mistakes and the issue had been resolved amicably.

Deputy Speaker Murtaza Javed Abbasi appreciated the efforts of the committee as well as response of the members to realize their mistake and paving way for resolving the matter.

He said basically the Speaker and he himself were responsible only for those unpleasant incidents that occured within the House. "Even though, we both intervened as it was the matter of the respect of the House. I was myself part of the committee and it is appreciable that the members helped us resolve the issue amicably."
