MQM’s advisors Faisal Sabzwari, Adil Siddique and Haseebuddin submitted their resignations to chief minister Sindh via fax.

MQM’s ministers and advisors have also returned the official cars to the government.

Earlier, MQM on Sunday announced to part ways with the government. The Raabta Committee said that MQM will now take their rights and identity along with the new province, adding that there will be no compromise after their chief Altaf Hussain was criticized, Dunya News reported.

According to the details, MQM made the announcement after holding a joint session between its Raabta Committees of London and Karachi.

MQM announced not to remain part of the Sindh government anymore.

Addressing the media in Karachi, MQM leader Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said that first Opposition Leader in National Assembly Khursheed Shah termed the word ‘Muhajir’ as abusive and then PPP chairman made the ‘provoking’ speech against the MQM.

“There’s no reason left for us to work together with PPP”, he said.

He said it has come to the point that supporting PPP now means weakening Pakistan.

Siddiqui said that they will now take their rights, identity and a new province. He said the consequence of abusing ‘Muhajir’ is creation of a new province.

He said MQM will never surrender the demand of creation of a new province.

MQM leader said that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari could not make life difficult for the murderers of his mother Benazir Bhutto, his uncle Murtaza Bhutto.

He said that the heir of a Bhutto can only be a Bhutto and not a Zardari.

During the press conference, Raabta Committee members also chanted ‘go Zardari go’ and ‘go Bilawal go’ slogans.
