LHC dismisses plea seeking removal of Chairman Senate
As per details, a citizen named Mashkoor Hussain filed a plea in Lahore High Court seeking the removal of Sadiq Sanjrani as Senate chairman.

The plea stated that Sanjrani had been elected as a member of the Balochistan Assembly and he cannot retain both seats at the same time.

Hence, the court should bar him from performing duties as Senate chairman and order to vacate his Senate seat, the plea stated.

After the initial hearing, the LHC rejected the plea and directed the plaintiff to contact the Islamabad High Court in the matter.
