Muzaffarabad: The government of Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) on Tuesday sacked two ministers for not dissociating from Muttahida Qaumi Movement(MQM).
A notification issued from prime minister secretariat said that prime minister Choudhary Abdul Majeed has sacked transport minister, Tahir Ahmed Khokhar and sports minister, Salim Butt.
PaK information minister, Sardar Abid Hussian Abid said that both the ministers have been removed from the cabinet after they did not announce their separation from MQM whose chief Altaf Hussian has been issuing anti-army statements.
The government has set a two-day dead line for the ministers to isolate themselves from Altaf Hussian after the latter had asked NATO forces to intervene in Karachi.
Tahir Khokhar said that he would not dissociate himself from the party and claimed that they had submitted their resignations six months ago, against the alleged corrupt practices of government.
He said that the government plan to create fissures in MQM has failed. He said that the MQM members would sit on opposition benches.
