KARACHI: The legislators of Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) registered a strong protest in the Sindh Assembly on Tuesday against rejection of adjournment motion, meant to discuss what they described as ‘extrajudicial’ killing of their workers, ARY News reported.
They chanted slogans against rejection of the motion and tore copies of the assembly agenda.
Law Minister Dr. Sikander Mandhro termed the adjournment motion against the rules and procedure, thus drawing wrath of MQM lawmakers.
They demanded that ‘controversial’ Pakistan Protection Bill should be allowed to hold a discussion on it in the house.
Faisal Sabzwari said the party had no information about five of its workers and government should tell about it.
Information Minister Sharjeel Memon said none of the five MQM workers were picked by Rangers of police; We are trying to know about their alleged detention and disappearance, he added.
“A committee has been formed to inquire about missing workers,” minister told the house.
