KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Monday said Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) should be made a separate province. The MQM chief demanded the state of ensuring fundamental rights to the people of Fata on priority basis. On Sunday, Altaf Hussain was addressing a meeting of Punjabi and Seraiki workers of his party at the Lal Qila ground and said that creating more provinces in Pakistan was in the larger interest of the 200 million people of the country and necessary for good governance. Hussain said that provinces and administrative units were being created all over the world in view of the growing population. However, in Pakistan this demand was being opposed just to maintain status quo. Altaf Hussain said that nationalist parties had created a fuss when he had demanded the creation of new provinces, adding that he was not the only one talking about the need for new provinces as Tahirul Qadri and Imran Khan had also demanded for the creation of new provinces. The MQM chief has repeatedly demanded the creation of new provinces and earlier in September went on to say that Pakistan would be wiped out from the global map if new administrative borders were not drawn.
