KARACHI  - The Coordination Committee of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has rejected the news reports published in a section of the Press regarding the discussions about the successor of Altaf Hussain as baseless, misleading and irresponsible.

It said that there was not an iota of truth in these reports that were being purposely spread to create confusion among MQM workers and sympathisers about the party leadership.  The Committee said that the conspiracies to create disharmony in the rank and file of the MQM by spreading baseless reports and malicious comments by certain journalists would come to nothing.  It further said that the workers and office-bearers of the MQM were firmly united and organised under the leadership of Altaf Hussain.


INP adds: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan will pay a two-day visit to Karachi from Monday (today) to review the law and order situation in the mega City.

According to details, the Interior Minister will hold meetings with Governor Dr Ishratul Ibad and Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah on the law and order situation in Sindh in general and Karachi in particular.

Sources said while the Interior Minister will assure full support of the Federal Government to the Governor and Chief Minister for improvement in the law and order situation, he would make it clear that no leniency would be tolerated towards the criminal elements.

He will also be chairing some meetings on the law and order situation.  According to Interior Ministry sources, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan will get separate briefings from heads of Police, Rangers and sensitive institutions.

The Interior Minister will also be meeting Sindh leadership of PML-N.
