MQM leader Farooq Sattar, on Wednesday asserted that his party has tabled two privilege motions in the National Assembly Secretariat against PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif, regarding his exile from Pakistan.
The first motion states that Nawaz Sharif never clarified the status of his exile before the nation, and that his deal with the dictators of that time should be made public, but was kept secret for seven years.
While the second motion speaks against the non democratic behavior of the PML N, it says the party has always been in good relations with the Army, and that Mian Shahbaz Sharif and Chaudhary Nisar held secret meetings with the Amry Chief but they never took the nation into confidence regarding these meetings.
Earlier the PML-N had submitted a privilege motion against MQM chief Altaf Hussain on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Jamat-e-Islami (JI) also submitted a privilege motion against the MQM chief in the Khyber-Pukhtunkhwa Assembly.
Mufti Kifayatullah and Shah Hussain submitted the motion that states that Altaf Hussain’s remarks are contrary to the constitution. It was also added that such remarks aim at affecting democracy in the country.
ANP Leader and Senior Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa minister Bashir Bilour, while talking to Express News in Peshawar, said the MQM has always supported martial law in the country.
'Conspiracy being hatched'
Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said that MQM chief Altaf Hussain's statement, regarding martial law, has damaged the prestige of the Pakistan Army.
Talking to Express News, the prime minister said that a conspiracy is being hatched to damage the interests of the country.
Gilani said that funds for the victims of floods are being utilised in a transparent manner. He said that a system devised by the auditor general is being followed to disburse funds.
The prime minister said that he welcomes PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif's proposals regarding post-flood efforts.
