The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

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.
