Fazlur Rehman urges Speaker NA not to accept MQM resignations


ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazal (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Wednesday contacted National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq and exchanged views over Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) members resignations.


Fazlur Rehman appealed the NA Speaker not to accept the resignations, to which, Ayaz Sadiq responded by saying that the resignations have not been accepted yet.

Fazl said that Ayaz Sadiq had blocked PTI resignations from processing whereas he validated MQM’s resignation on the first day. He said there should be equal standard for all parties.

Appealing not to accept resignations, Fazlur Rehman said the government should not act in haste over this matter.
