ISLAMABAD: National Assembly House and Library Committee on Tuesday decided to launch an operation against the illegal occupants residing in the lobbies of the Parliament Lodges in the coming week.

The committee met under the chairmanship of National Assembly Deputy Speaker Faisal Karim Kundi in the Parliament House to discuss the progress report regarding the vacation of lobbies, side rooms and servant quarters in the Parliament Lodges.
Earlier, the Parliament Lodges director informed the committee that on the direction of the House and Library Committee a detailed survey was being conducted by the CDA and ICT Police, and a list of occupants had been prepared.
CDA confirmed that nine servant quarters out of 121 were still found locked. It was also informed that proformas had also been circulated among all the parliamentarians residing there to give the details of their staff to authorise for entrance in the lodges.
He said that only 48 profromas duly filled have been received so far.
While discussing the matter pertaining to the National Assembly Employees Cooperative Housing Society (NAECHS), the ICT additional commissioner informed the committee that negotiations were in final stages with an adjacent housing society for the provision of plots to employees of the National Assembly.
