PPP, MQM members exchange hot words in heated SA session
MQM MPAs submitted a notice urging the assembly to pay attention to the statement issued by Additional Inspector General Ghulam Qadir Thebo regarding the party.
Thebo had said that there are groupings within MQM.
Abdul Haseeb Khan of MQM, speaking at the floor of the session, said that a conspiracy is being hatched against the party judging by the statements of the police chief.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s Khwaja Izhar-ul-Hassan stated that the party staged a sit-in outside Chief Minister House for 10 hours with the bodies of their workers, which were allegedly killed in police custody, but no one from CM House came to console them.
Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah called MQM’s protest as an attack on CM House on which the members of the opposition party started chanting slogans against the provincial government.
“People committing crimes will not be spared. The statements issued by Additional IG are absolutely correct”, Shah said.
The chief minister questioned that why target killing incidents are ignored when MQM is in power.
“Which party was ruling the province when 12th May, 2007 incident took place?”, he asked.
MQM members walked out of the assembly to mark their protest over the chief minister’s statement.
Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon, talking to media after the session, said that CM Sindh was speaking the truth but some members took it as an offence.
