Awami National Party (ANP) on Thursday filed a privilege motion against the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Assembly.

Before this the MQM had submitted two motions against PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif in response of an earlier motion submitted by the PML-N against Altaf Hussain.

The timeline is as follows:

August 22: MQM chief Altaf Hussain makes his speech urging “any patriotic general” to take steps against corrupt politicians and feudalism.

August 24: PML-N submits privilege motion against the MQM chief in the National Assembly.

The motion said that the statements issued by Altaf Hussain were against the spirit of democracy and the sanctity of the parliament.

At least 87 PML-N members signed the privilege motion.

August 25: Jamat-e-Islami submits privilege motion against Altaf Hussain in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Assembly.

Mufti Kifayatullah and Shah Hussain submitted the motion that stated that Altaf Hussain’s remarks are contrary to the constitution.

August 26: MQM submits two adjournment motions against PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif in the Senate.

The first motion stated that Nawaz Sharif has continuously been hiding facts and making false assertions regarding his exile. The second motions said that secret meetings between Chaudhry Nisar and Mian Shahbaz Sharif and the chief of army staff were against the spirit of democracy.

The motions were submitted by MQM senators Babar Ghouri, Ahmed Ali, Abdul Haseeb Khan and Abdul Khaliq Peerzada.

Fayaz Hussain | 11 years ago | Reply We are moving forward as peoples are now saying very clearly about their thoughts which was not the case a couple of years earlier. But does that mean we start opposing the constitution where i believe it would be clearly mentioned the role of army as well as other institutions... why do we want to be ruled by the army. I read in news papers that someone was summoned due to contempt of court, i believe the summoned one might have said or acted against the court verdict ? so if the contempt of court is a crime than why not contempt of constitution, that must be considered even biger crime.. someone mentined in coments that the words are actually voice of the majority. which majority, I think in Punjab PML(N) has the majority of votes, in KPK, ANP has the majority of votes, in Sindh, PPP has the majority of votes, and so they have formed the governments. two of whom have condemned it i.e. PML (N) and ANP even PPP have not admired it. do you mean the majority of Balochistan? What I and every one believe in is the democracy as mentioned in different newspapers articles that it is the only method of ruling which will eventually make our nations successfull and prosperious. let the democracy flourish, if we observe the present government is not on the path where it should have to lead the nation or even elected member of parliament of our own area is not bringing any good to the comunity than I am sure next time they would not be able to get the votes untill and unless they win the hearts of people by their positive doings.. We are the ones who actually cast vote which collectly makes the parties to win and subsquently form government .. it means we ourselves are the ones to be blamed by not giving our votes to the right person so next time we would be more careful by knowing that how much value our single vote has.. this whole process ultimately bring the change, why are we looking for a short term and a short cut to bring every thing as we a particular group wnat it to be..
MD | 11 years ago | Reply Culprits are being afraid of ALtaf Hussain, 87 PML-N members signed the privilege motion which is the confession by themselves that they are the real culprits as Altaf Hussain's did not point out any political party in his statement.
