KARACHI:  Chief of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Altaf Hussain, called for a public referendum over Rangers operation that is being carried out against criminals and  mafias in Karachi today.

The demand was made by the MQM chief in a statement from London.

“There is no public mandate behind Rangers actions and operations in the city. Therefore, a referendum should be held to know public opinion,” Altaf Hussain said.

He also demanded that a committee of judges of supreme and high courts should be formed to oversee Rangers actions.

On Tuesday, the MQM chief asked Chief Minister Sindh to pass a bill in Sindh Assembly against Rangers’ stay in the province.
