ISLAMABAD- The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) staged a walkout from the Senate against non-issuance of Pakistani identity card and passport to the party Chief Altaf Hussain.
MQM Senator Tahir Mashadi said the government had not responded even a month after Hussain filed the application for his passport and ID card . He said officials of National Database and Regulatory Authority (NADRA) lied in the Senate 's Standing Committee about not receiving Altaf Hussain's application. The Senator warned of closing down Karachi for a year if the government didn't issue the passport and ID card .
