JI MPA seeks debate on formation of NFC


The JI lawmaker and former provincial minister Inyatullah Khan has submitted an adjournment motion with the provincial assembly seeking formation of the National Finance Commission Award.
The motion was part of the agenda of the assembly item for the Monday session chaired by Abdul Salam from the panel of chairmen. The mover contended that under article 160 of the constitution formation of NFC and its award was a must after every five-year.
No NFC has been constituted since 2010 whereas the same award was being renewed every year thus causing tremendous financial difficulties for the federating units to meet their both ends.
Therefore, he urged the chair to bring the matter for the House discussion.
