LAHORE, Jun 18 (APP):Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Affairs, Naeem-ul-Haq on Tuesday warned the opposition in the parliament to lodge their protest while remaining within the ambit, otherwise law would take its due course.

Naeemul Haq explained that National Assembly (NA) had 38 standing committees, which had crucial role in the legislation.
The opposition had assured the government of extending cooperation in running the house business/legislation process, if it was given chairmanship of these committees as well as Public Accounts Committee’s (PAC) Chairmanship to NA Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif.
