PESHAWAR: Women MPAs of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will protest against delay in drafting of rules on Prevention of Violence Against Women.
The women members of provincial assembly from both sides of the divide warned to hold protest against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government over undue delay in formulation of rules under “Prevention of Violence Against Women Bill” despite the passage of two-year of the bills.
It was decided in a meeting of KP Assembly Standing Committee on Population Welfare, chaired by PPP MPA and chairperson of the committee Nighat Orakzai.
The members of the committee expressed grave concern over non-formulation of the rule on the important issue and decided to stage a sit-in in front of the cabinet room during the upcoming cabinet meeting to mark their protest and force the cabinet to take decision over the matter.
The committee members also urged Chief Minister Mahmood Khan to issue orders to compile the rules as soon as possible and approve them in the next cabinet meeting. By Roshan Khan Wazir
