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.
