ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has gained possession of 13 suites at the Parliamentary Lodges previously occupied by former MNAs from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party.
The possession was taken after the former MNAs resigned and their resignations were accepted by the Speaker of the National Assembly.
During the operation, CDA officers were accompanied by Magistrate City Ghulam Murtaza Chandio.
The locks of five suites, belonging to Farrukh Habib, Zahoor Qureshi, Shahid Khattak, Shabbir Haider Zaidi, and Shandana Gulzar, had to be broken, while the other eight were voluntarily vacated.
In the last week of January, CDA issued notices to the former PTI MNAs, asking them to vacate their suites as they were no longer members of the National Assembly.
The notices, issued on January 24th, gave the ex-MNAs seven days to hand over possession of the suites to the Office of the Director of Parliament Lodges.
A CDA official shared that the authority would resume the operation to vacate the lodges from Monday (today).
