MQM joins opposition inquiry committee

ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition Khursheed Shah announced on Friday after joint opposition session that Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) will also be a part of the opposition’s six-member inquiry committee, Aaj News reported

According to reports, MQM members were earlier excluded from the committee as the opposition wanted the party to publicly declare they are part of the opposition and go along with whatever decision is taken.

Senator Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif will be representing MQM in the six-member opposition committee in place of Aftab Ahmed Sherpao, Shah added.

The opposition leader urged NA Speaker Ayaz Sadiq to summon the first meeting of committee on Monday.
