Terming the allegations of recovery of Indian-made weapons from Landhi’s office of Muttahida Qaumi Movement, a spokesman of the party vehemently rejected the allegation, describing it as ‘baseless and a cooked up story’.
A spokesman for the MQM in a statement issued on Tuesday said that the MQM’s office in question was under the use of people’s elected representatives and it was being visited by the people of the locality for the solution of their problems.
“Coming into the light of such an allegation in the wake a press conference clearly indicates that it was a fabricated and a baseless allegation and a part of maligning the MQM,” the spokesman added.
He said that even in the past baseless allegations including that of Jinnahpur were levelled and fake and bogus maps were presented in this connection to prove MQM as an anti-state party, but afterwards who had levelled such fake allegations had admitted before the media that the allegation of Jinnahpur was merely a drama.
“Only recently, a provoking issue of Mohajir Republican Army was raised, thereafter efforts were made to level allegation concerning disappearance of 19,000 NATO containers against former the federal minister, Senator Babar Ghauri, a clarification of which by D-G Rangers was a part of record and now a fake and fabricated allegation has been levelled against MQM which is a highly regretful act,” the spokesman added.
The spokesman said that by levelling such an allegation against the MQM which is a patriotic party amounted to a medial trial.
The spokesman demanded of President Mamnoon Hussain, Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif, Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and Chief of Army Staff, General Ashfaq Parvez Keyani, to take immediate notice of such a regretful allegation.
