The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

The Mut­tahida Qaumi Move­ment (MQM) has set five con­di­tions for with­drawal of its par­lia­men­tar­i­ans' res­ig­na­tions.

On Wed­nes­day, 24 MNAs, 8 sen­a­tors and 51 Sindh Assem­bly mem­bers be­long­ing to the Mut­tahida Qaumi Move­ment (MQM) sub­mit­ted their res­ig­na­tions in protest against al­leged vic­tim­i­sa­tion of party work­ers.

Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif and other par­lia­men­tary lead­ers have urged the MQM to with­draw its res­ig­na­tions as it will trig­ger po­lit­i­cal cri­sis in the coun­try, how­ever, the protest­ing party has stressed that it will take back res­ig­na­tions only if the gov­ern­ment ad­dresses its reser­va­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to sources, the party has asked the gov­ern­ment to lift re­stric­tion on broad­cast­ing of Altaf Hus­sain's lives speeches. It has de­manded es­tab­lish­ment of mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee to en­sure that no in­jus­tices is com­mit­ted dur­ing on­go­ing tar­geted op­er­a­tion in Karachi.

The MQM fur­ther de­manded that Rangers-led op­er­a­tion should be un­bi­ased and ar­rested party work­ers should be im­me­di­ately pre­sented in the courts. Lastly, the party has asked the gov­ern­ment to take im­me­di­ate mea­sures for re­cov­ery of miss­ing party work­ers.
