ISLAMABAD, February 22, 2010 (Balochistan Times): MQM senator
Haseeb Khan has tabled an adjournment motion against the recent
statement of Interior Minister Rehman Malik given in National Assembly,
in which he had declared 50% of drugs manufactured in the Country as
spurious, and below standards. The motion floated by senator Haseeb Khan
on Monday, was presented immediately after the Upper House began its
session and would be debated later on. Senator Haseeb Khan had
complained that the motion was splashed generously by Indian media, and
endangered exports of Pakistani medicine. He was of the opinion that it
did not augur prudent for interior minister to render statements like
these , which were counterproductive for National interests and economy.
