Imran Khan criticizes Sindh govt. for Swat immigrant banMay 24th, 2009 - 5:05 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, May 24 (ANI): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan has criticized the Sindh government for its decision to ban the entry of Swat immigrants to the province.
Terming the government’s decision as ‘unconstitutional’,Khan said no one can deny the entry of civilians into any part of their country, nor can they be asked to register themselves before entering another province.
He blamed the MQM for pressuring the government to take such an unlawful move.
“It is shameful that the MQM is not ready to shoulder the responsibility alongside its partner the PPP of the fallout from this ill-timed and ill-planned military operation,” Khan said.
The cricketer-turned-politician said the response of the MQM-PPP coalition in Sindh, in this time of tragedy, was turning the crisis into a potential ethnic conflict.
Khan urged the country’s leadership to allow all the immigrants to move freely across the country without any need of registration or anything such similar barriers. (ANI)
