Separately, it is pertinent to note MQM-P, earlier the past month, asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to withdraw treason cases against the top party leaders, registered over listening to a speech in July 2015.
The matter was taken up by the party members during the federal cabinet meeting. During the meeting, it was said that treason cases were registered against the top MQM-P leaders in July 2015.
“The cases were registered for clapping while viewing a speech of the former founder leader of the party on Youtube,” the MQM-P leader said while further stressing that if the government could withdraw the case of the opposition party-referring to a request from PML-N over the treason case- then why it could not withdraw cases against its coalition partners.
