MQM's resignations aimed to save target killers: Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday said that resignations by lawmakers of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) are aimed to save targeted killers of the party.

While responding to resignations of MQM members, Khan also defended the resignations of his party's lawmakers saying that our resignations were aimed to initiate an investigation into the allegations of rigging in general elections 2013.



Earlier Muttahida Qaumi Movment (MQM) lawmakers submitted their resignations in National Assembly and Sindh Assembly while expressing their serious concerns over ongoing Karachi Operation.

In August 2014 the lawmakers of PTI had also submitted their resignations in National, Punjab and Sindh Assemblies however the members never appeared before speakers to verify the resignations. As a result the resignations were never accepted and PTI returned to assemblies after a deal was achieved to investigate 2013's general elections.
