LONDON: 3RD MAY 2012:
Mr Altaf Hussain, founder and leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM), has congratulated the people of southern Punjab on the passing of the resolution by the National Assembly for the creation of the southern Punjab province. He said that the MQM had always been a strong proponent for creating a Seraiki or southern Punjab province and the demand had been a part of its manifesto as well.
Mr Hussain said that the MQM had made a promise to the Seraiki people that it would raise a voice for their rights in the parliament. It redeemed its pledge by submitting bills in the National Assembly and the Senate and the passing of the resolution for the creation of the Seraiki province with a thumping majority in the National Assembly was a matter of great joy.
