The issue was brought up in Balochistan when a female MPA from Kech was asked to leave the assembly for bringing her infant with her.
On April 29, Mahjabeen Sheran brought her seven-month-old to the assembly because he could not be left at home due to sickness. She was asked to leave.
She had asked for a daycare to be set up at the assembly multiple times before but her request was turned down.
The country’s Parliament House in Islamabad already has a daycare.
