News Desk October 21, 2012

Welcoming the Supreme Court’s ruling on Asghar Khan’s petition, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has demanded action against the army and government officials involved in rigging the 1990 elections.

According to a press release issued by the party’s co-coordination committee on Saturday, the committee asked all politicians who accepted money from army and intelligence officials to “show courage” and surrender themselves to the law.

It further claimed that MQM chief Altaf Hussain was also offered money like others but he refused to accept it and ‘sell his conscience’.

The statement said that the case bore out the fact that government agencies had been meddling in the country’s political process and influencing elections.

The committee called for ensuring that all state institutions work within their framework in future and do not transgress their constitutional limits.
