ISLAMABAD: Fourteen more bills were passed by National Assembly Thursday soon after the government had a sigh of relief after it passed the controversial mini-budget and State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) bills.

The session, which started at 4:30pm and ended at midnight amid strong protests and anti-government sloganeering by opposition parties, saw 14 government-sponsored bills also sailing through the lower house of parliament.
