Decision to enhance minority seats lauded


PPP leader Dr Mahesh Kumar has appreciated the government’s decision to increase minority lawmakers’ seats in the provincial and national assemblies.
He told Radio Pakistan that the cabinet’s decision is reflective of the minority rights, adding the PPP government accepted minorities’ demand to increase their seats in the assemblies proportional to their population. He expressed the hope that all political parties will also support them in the parliament. He said that four more seats of minorities would be added to reserved seats of the non-Muslims.
