MQM leader slams CM Qaim’s statement about Liaquat Ali Khan

KARACHI: Acting Convener Nadeem Nusrat has strongly condemned Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah’s statement about former Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan and said that it appeared as a prejudicial behavior.

In a statement issued from London Secretariat, Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) leader said that instead of being ashamed for unprecedented corrupt regime, the CM attempted to manipulate the historical facts. He said that the former Prime Minister did not plunder the nation’s wealth like the PPP’s leadership had been doing so far.

Meanwhile, the Coordination Committee of MQM also slammed the Chief Minister Sindh for his comments. It said that the CM deliberately manipulated the facts. It said that the former PM inherently received his father Nawab Rustam Ali Khan’s fortune, who was one of the wealthiest men of undivided Hindustan.

The Committee asserted that Khan did not claim a single inch of land against what he left abandoned in India after partition. It said that even at the time of his martyrdom, he merely had Rs 1200 in his bank account. It said that despite paying respect to our national heroes, the Chief Minister unfortunately posted a baseless allegation against Liaquat Ali Khan.
