MQM chief hints to take back resignations from assemblies


LONDON: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Wednesday said that his party will take back resignations if our reservations and concerns are addressed.


In an interview, the MQM chief said that he had been leading the party for 37 years and it is normal for people to come and leave parties.

Addressing the current crisis in his party ranks, Altaf Hussain said that many of his party workers were missing adding that he has no connection with criminal syndicates.

Altaf added that allegations regarding the NATO equipment and weapons seized from Nine-Zero, headquarters of MQM, are false.

MQM chief stated that his party would have cooperated if Rangers had told that a certain member of the party is involved in illicit activities.

Altaf Hussain said that Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar had promised that there would be no ‘extra judicial killings’. Hussain added that Chaudary Nisar had also promised to form a monitoring committee yet no step had been taken in this regard.

Reiterating his stance as a ‘patriot’, Altaf Hussain said that his party will celebrate the occasion of independence (on August 14) with full zeal and zest.
