KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Raza Haroon has submitted an application for a Sindh Assembly session to discuss the current law and order situation in Karachi and topics of mass interest, Express 24/7 reported Saturday.

Speaking to the media in Karachi, Raza thanked the political parties who had joined the MQM to submit the requisition in the assembly.

“PML-F leader Jam Madad Ali has also submitted the application, backing MQM in this cause”, he said.

He said that MQM will continue to raise its voice against the ills taking place in Karachi.

Raza condemned the rioting and civil unrest during the last four days and asserted that MQM will continue to carry out “peaceful” and “democratic” protests.

“MQM peacefully marked a ‘mourning day’ as a means to raise voice against the deteriorating security conditions in Karachi”, Haroon said.

He praised the media for vigilantly covering the riots and giving real-time updates on the Karachi riots.

“All of the coverage is kept as a record with MQM”, he said,” We will come prepared with it in the Sindh Assembly session”.

The MQM leader said that the party will continue being a part of the opposition and that it is the duty of an opposition party to remind the government of its responsibilities. He said that the opposition is the ‘voice of the masses’.

“Together we will fulfill the duty of opposition”, he said.

Furthermore, he said that apart from the security conditions of Karachi, MQM will discuss energy crisis which is not only hampering the industry and business, but is also worrying the citizens of Karachi.

Union dispute will also be discussed in the session to find a resolution to the issue. Other concerns of the public will also be discussed.

More than 100 people have been killed during the last four days in an ongoing wave of violence that has hit Karachi and paralysed life in the port city.
