KARACHI - After being ditched by the Pakistan People’s Party that supported an opposition resolution in Sindh Assembly against Altaf Hussain for his controversial remarks inviting foreign forces, the MQM has decided to give tough time to the ruling party in the provincial assembly.

MQM MPA Mohammad Hussain, who is the most vocal MQM legislator in the Sindh Assembly, told The Nation that the party had decided to go all out against the PPP leadership after they had broken a reconciliation policy of not bringing resolutions against the party leadership of any political group in the provincial assembly. He said that the MQM had submitted two resolutions against PTI chairman Imran Khan and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari over their remarks against the military leadership of the country.

“Except this we will also bring resolutions against the corrupt practices of the PPP in the province, exposing them in the house, so that the people should know their real face,” he said.

He said that his party would now give a tough time to the PPP in the assembly and the future strategy of the party in this regard would be finalised in the MQM parliamentary meeting to be held in Sindh Assembly on Monday (today).

Talking to The Nation, PTI lawmaker Khurram Sher Zaman said that it was a good step if the MQM would bring any resolution against the remarks of Asif Ali Zardari and corruption of the Sindh government; however, they would not support any such move.

“We’ll not support any of their resolution as they are accused of treason over inviting foreign forces in the country; however, we could also bring resolution of the same nature against their corruption and if they want to support us, we have no objections,” he said.

PML-N leader Sorath Thebo, who had also raised voice against the alleged corruption of a Business tycoon in Karachi for his housing scheme at Super Highway, casted his doubts over the intention of the MQM for bringing resolution against the ruling party’s corrupt practices and said that they would decide anything after through discussion in the party.

“It has been their trend that they never take the other opposition parties into confidence over the issues and we’ll take any decision after knowing the content of their resolution,” he said.

PML-F lawmaker Nusrat Sehar Bano while taunting the Karachi-based party said that soon after being ditched by the PPP, they realised that here is corruption in the province.

“We have been raising voice against corruption for last seven years by the PPP government; however, the MQM which was then sitting in treasury benches and enjoying a backdoor reconciliation policy for last seven years, never raised this issue,” she said adding that soon after a resolution, they are now ready to take revenge from the ruling party.

She, however, said that if any such resolution would come in the assembly, they would review it and support it if it was in the interest of public.
