40-minute House session cost Rs. 8 million Featured

Nearly Rs. eight million had been spent to hold yesterday’s (20) parliament session that was due to take up the Central Bank bond issue for debate, but lasted a mere 40 minutes.

The MPs have to be paid the attendance allowance and costs for their meals, fuel consumption, electricity supply etc. borne at public expense.

Just over one-fourth of the MPs were in attendance.

Those who were due to raise oral questions and the ministers who should answer them were absent at the session.
