Express October 09, 2011


In an apparent jab at the Sharif brothers, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Saturday accused ‘some’ in the Punjab government of ‘political maneuvering’ through visits to flood victims in Sindh.

He said while the some in the Punjab government failed to visit flood victims in vehari and Qasoor, they showed up in Sindh with relief goods in a display of “tactful political maneuvour”.

Hussain was addressing party workers and members of the MQM coordination committee in Azizabad on Saturday to mark the sixth anniversary of the 2005 earthquake.

Hussain also urged human rights organisations to take notice of Aisha, the ex-wife of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.

“The chief justice of Pakistan should take suo motu notice of the injustice done to Aisha,” he said.

stop fighting brothers. The political system has completely failed in Pakistan and lets face it there is hardly any hope if these parties remain in power.

@Salman Orangiwala,

Where is altaf hussain btw? enjoying the pleasant weather of london for past decades? At least Mirza, NS, IK come to Sindh- for popularity sakes if it pleases you. But for the people of Sindh they are all a big sigh of relief! Better then receiving aid from foreign leaders like Altaf hussain.

Altaf hussain can only sit in the lavish homes in london and criticise everyone- PPP, PMLN, PTI, JI, ANP. Your altaf hussain is going to be the first one to join NS or IK if they ever form a Government so think before you criticise, you may have to eat your words
