Anti-Modi resolution submitted in Punjab Assembly


A resolution was tabled in the Punjab Assembly on Wednesday, condemning Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for accusing Pakistan of cross-border terrorism.

The resolution strongly condemned the Indian prime minister for leveling terror allegations against Pakistan.

It demanded that the new Indian government should stop financial and technical assistance to terrorists in Balochistan.

The resolution also called for an end to illegal occupation of Kashmir.

It said that India should not misconstrue Pakistan’s goodwill gesture as weakness and hold sincere talks.

However, the resolution was not allowed to have a debate.

Guru Nanak’s birthday a public holiday

Sardar Ramesh Singh, the first Sikh member of the Punjab Assembly, tabled a resolution requesting that the birthday of Guru Nanak, founder of Sikhism, be made a public holiday.

The resolution was approved in the Punjab Assembly.

The passing of the resolution comes just a few days after members of the Sikh community stormed through the gates of the Parliament House to protest against the alleged desecration of their holy books.

The protesters later apologised for entering the premises in a violent manner and forwarded a list of demands to members of the Senate.

Leader of the House Raja Zafarul Haq had assured the 13-member Sikh committee that he would forward their demands to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
