Rabitta Committee left me alone in hard time: Altaf Hussain


KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday said Rabitta Committee left him alone in hard time after enjoying privileges of the ministries.


Speaking to party workers here at Lal Qila Ground via telephone from London, he said majority of Rabita Committee members have left him alone in an episode similar to what he said happened back in 1992.

“Majority of Rabita Committee members have ran away, so tell me what I should do,” said the disgruntled founding leader of MQM.

Hussain said the party leaders have fled the country without any prior notices, adding that the Rabita Committee had committed the same betrayal during the 1992 operation against the party.

In a bid to repair ties with the armed forces of the country, the MQM chief said that the Army and Rangers were their own.

Altaf urged Army Chief General Raheel Sharif to listen to pleads of heirs of the slain party workers as well.
