Pakistan Muslim League-N and Pakistan Peoples Party leaders have strongly condemned the statement of Altaf Hussain regarding the imposition of martial law.
Federal Minister for Information Qamar Zaman Kaira has said that Altaf Hussain’s statement is against the constitution of the country. He added that the statement is also against the sentiments of the masses. He reiterated that a number of sacrifices have been made for restoring democracy in the country.
Opposition leader in National Assembly (NA) Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan expressed anguish over the comments made by Altaf Hussain.
Nisar was of the view that MQM chairman Altaf Hussain made a highly irresponsible statement in the prevailing situation adding the Supreme Court should take suo motu notice of such statement.
The Election Commission and the Supreme Court should take notice of the irresponsible comments made by Altaf Hussain, Nisar said.
Nisar alleged that despite the fact that powers from the presidency have been transferred to the Prime Minister but the decisions are still being taken by the President.
It is pertinent to mention that Altaf Hussain on Sunday demanded of patriotic Pakistan Army generals to take action against corrupt politicians.
