Altaf calls for national govt, army intervention

KARACHI: The leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain said on Friday that the government had defamed the army in the National Assembly. He suggested that the army should take unwanted action and should maintain writ to rescue Pakistan. In a special interview, the MQM chief said that everyone knew the country’s fragile political situation for the last 15 to 20 days. He said that unfortunately the mandate of the then East Pakistan was not accepted, which ultimately resulted in the division of the country. He said that feudal lords, landlords and army generals kept coming to power and secured each others interests. The MQM, he said, was the only political party in the country that had brought poor and lower-middle class people into parliament. Altaf said the army was defamed on the National Assembly floor when the government claimed that the talks were held on the wish of PTI and PAT leaders but the ISPR’s statement later cleared all the ambiguities. He said that the people were in a dilemma due over the talks. Altaf requested the army to pay its due role to save the country.
