Has Punjab CM fled Pakistan?





Urging the need to protect the country “at all costs” and denouncing rulers who “dessert the country”, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain said that only time could tell if Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had gone to only visit China or had fled the country.

Talking to a private TV channel, bristled at the CM, saying that the rulers should shunned foreign trips under current turmoil.

The MQM chief said that no meaningful dialogues were being held with the participants of the Islamabad sit-ins.

Under the circumstances, the citizens usually start looking up to Pakistan Army, however, the armed forces were busy in Operation Zarb-e-Azb, Hussain said, adding that if an unconstitutional step could be taken up by invoking Article 6 of the Constitution, martial law could also be imposed.

In an earlier statement issued from the MQM’s International Secretariat in London, he urged tyhe countrymen to pray for country’s survival. “The people should relocate themselves to safer positions in post-midnight stretch and not leave their houses except for some unavoidable necessity,” he added.

In foresight, he underscored, he was eyeing massive bloodletting; hence, everyone should exercise extreme caution.

The Muttahida chief asserted it was high time that sacrifices are rendered in order to protect the country, adding his party was ready to give away all 25 seats in case anyone was in a position to form the government.

“I am primed to resign from all of 25 seats, if so required to terminate the potential air of bedlam in the country,” he announced, demanding Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to immediately hold the general polls.

The MQM chief brushed aside as “joke” the demand of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan regarding Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s 30-day resignation. He said some permanent solution was vital for a way out from the crisis.
