Earlier, PML-N leader Khawaja Asif had raised the issue of dismissal of PARC employees in parliament.

The matter is pending before the sub-committee of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). The department has yet to submit a reply to the committee.

The petition said that as long as the matter was before the committee, PARC should be stopped from interfering in the matter and ruling of NA speaker should be made compulsory for all executive authorities.
