ISLAMABAD- Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) staged walk out from the National Assembly today to protest against non-issuance of NICOP and Passport to party chief Altaf Hussain.
Speaking in the House, MQM’s Asif Hasnain alleged that the government which enjoyed two third majority was adopting undemocratic attitude by resorting to unfair tactics. He said State Minister claimed Altaf Hussain’s data had been lost, while in fact, NADRA team had visited Altaf Hussain’s residence and collected data. Rashid Godil asked if Maryam Nawaz was issued passport, why not Altaf Hssain? On this occasion, State Minister Abid Sher Ali said it wasn’t appropriate to name Maryam Nawaz Sharif on this issue, adding that Altaf Hussian had himself surrendered his passport to British authorities, and would now have to adopt legal way to get Pakistani documents.
