SA passes resolutions against Altaf
Sindh Assembly passed on Friday resolutions condemning the anti- state remarks of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain.
The resolutions which were passed after similar resolutions were tabled in Punjab, KhyberPakhtunkhwa and Balochistan assemblies in the past several days, were jointly moved by opposition parties. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)'s Samar Ali Khan, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)'s Shafi Jamot and Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F)'s Nand Kumar jointly moved resolutions in the Sindh Assembly which were passed with majority vote. The Pakistan Peoples Party supported the resolutions.
The resolution condemned the MQM leader's statements seeking foreign help while it demanded the provincial government to take strict legal action against him. Further, the resolution also rejected the demand raised by Altaf Hussain to divide the province. However, soon after, MQM moved a resolution against former president Asif Ali Zardari for his remarks against the army. MQM lawmakers protested and raised slogans in favour of their party head during the assembly proceedings.
