GILGIT: Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain has said Gilgit-Baltistan should be given representation in the lower and upper house of the country. He said the day is not far when the people of this region would enjoy representation in the National Assembly and the Senate.
In a telephonic address during a Meet the Press Programme here, Altaf said the MQM is against the feudal system and trying to eliminate the corrupt political culture. He said he wants to come back but members of the Rabita Committee advise him to stay in London. He said he never supported former president General Pervez Musharraf. He directed members of the National Assembly belonging to the MQM to raise voice on the floor of the House on national issues. Declaring the MQM a liberal party, Altaf Hussain wished sectarian harmony in Gilgit-Baltistan and said the MQM is the party of all Pakistanis. courtesy The News
