Rangers favoring PTI in Karachi: Farooq Sattar
ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) -  Muttahida Qaumi Movment (MQM) lawmaker Farooq Sattar on Wednesday alleged that Sindh Rangers have been favoring Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) while cornering MQM in Karachi operation.

Sattar, while speaking on the floor of the National Assembly, said MQM is being victimized as the party’s arrested workers are not being produced in courts. He further alleged that over 40 workers of his party had been killed extra-judicially.

Sattar further added that an unannounced ban has been enforced on social and charitable activities of the party while television channels have been instructed against live broadcast of MQM chief Altaf Hussain’s speeches.

MQM lawmaker, while concluding his speech in NA, said the decision of resignations from all electoral houses is final and would not be reversed. He chanted slogan 'Pakistan Zindabaad, Quaid-e-Azam Paindibaad' and stepped out of National Assembly.

Earlier, MQM lawmakers arrived at Parliament to submit their resignations. The MQM has decided to step out of the legislative fold in light of reservations over the ongoing Karachi operation.

Meanwhile, MQM MPAs in the Sindh Assembly have submitted their resignations. According to MQM leader Khawaja Izhar-ul-Hasan, 51 party MPAs tendered their resignations which were hand written.
