PIB: 3% Host community fund divides lawmakers

There was a mild drama on the floor of the House of Representatives on Thursday over the harmonized version of the Petroleum Industry Bill which approved three percent for host communities as against five percent amended on the floor of the House. 

Members from the south who had gone through the harmonized version arrived the chamber in solidarity to protest the percentage given to host communities 

To douse tension, the speaker moved that the bill be stepped down till further notice.
