MQM MNAs slam PTI workers for looting & threatening drivers


 Posted on: 12/7/2013
Members of National Assembly belonging to Muttahida Qaumi Movement have strongly condemned the incidents of loot, extraction of oil from tankers and threats of dire consequences being given to drivers of all Tankers during Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) sit-ins and protests against the NATO supplies.
In a joint statement issued on Saturday, the Haq Parast legislators said that though the NATO supplies did not seem to come to a halt, thousands of commercial tankers’ drivers and their families were being badly exploited economically.
Moreover, thousands of empty tankers stranded at Afghanistan’s Torkhum border were not entering Pakistan owing to incidents of looting money from tankers’ drivers and threats of dire consequence being given to them by workers of the PTI during their party’s sit-ins and protests over NATO supplies, they added.
They deplored that the country had already suffered a loss of over Rs15 billion in the wake of PTI’s sit-ins and protests, causing grave impact on the national exchequer.
The MQM MNAs demanded to President Mamnoon Hussain, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, chief ministers of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and Punjab to take serious notice of the criminal activities and indifferent attitude being meted out to drivers of commercial tankers by the PTI workers, giving stern punishment to all those involved in such unlawful activities.
They also urged people at the helm of affairs to provide full-fledged security to tankers and their drivers.
