Altaf telephones Zardari, Asfandyar; expresses concerns over terrorism


Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Sunday telephoned the Awami National Party (ANP) President Asfandyar Wali Khan and President Asif Ali Zardari and discussed the overall political situation in the country and the prevalent terrorist attacks on political parties.

Altaf Hussain also discussed the future strategy with the ANP chief.

Many workers of the three parties have been killed during the past few days in a series of attacks on rallies and election offices of the three parties.

Earlier, Altaf Hussain said that the upcoming elections would become controversial if all political parties were not given a level-playing field.

All three leaders were of the view that the acts of terrorism, as compared to Punjab, were rising disproportionately in the other three provinces of Pakistan, spreading fear and panic.

“Does Pakistan comprise of Punjab? As it is the only province where electioneering was being carried out freely while the worst kind of terrorism was continuing in the remaining three provinces of the country,” they said.

They strongly condemned the terrorist attacks on the ANP, PPP and MQM and asked all the liberal parties to join hands against the terrorists.
