MQM parliamentarians walk out

KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement staged a walk out from the Sindh Assembly as the party tried to present the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board Ammendment bill.

When an MQM parliamentarian sought speaker Shehla Raza’s permission to present the bill, she denied it.

After this MQM parliamentarians gathered around the speaker dice and chanted slogans against the speaker.

The MQM emerged victorious in the local bodies election. It has nominated Waseem Akhtar as mayor. However the party has been protesting that the mayor is powerless.
