KARACHI: Members of National Assembly and Senate belonging to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) have strongly demanded of the party’s Rabita Committee that they should be allowed to sit in the Opposition over irresponsible attitude of the Sindh Government.
In a joint statement issued from MQM’s Headquarter Nine Zero on Saturday, the MQM’s Parliamentarians, drawing the Rabita Committee’s attention toward current spree of target killing, said that an important figure of the federal government was repeatedly informed about the irresponsible attitude of the Sindh government. However, it is regretted the federal government failed to take any concrete step in this regard.
According to the statement, everybody in aware that PPP is in power both in federal as well as provincial governments.
“The terrorists of Lyari gang war and other criminal groups have continued to kidnap and kill the innocent activist of the MQM. While some elements of the provincial government are patrioinsing these elements,” it said.
On Jan 8, the Lyari-based terrorist killed five MQM’s workers after kidnapping them. While a day earlier, these criminals kidnapped another activist of the MQM’s Lyari Sector, Sector Unit-2 and subjected him to brutal torture before beheading him.
The MQM’s parliamentarians have demanded of the Rabita Committee that they should reconsider its decision and sit in the opposition benches.
