Asif Steven, MPA from MQM in Sindh assembly, resigned due to fake degree.

KARACHI: Asif Steven, MPA from MQM in Sindh assembly, resigned from his basic party's membership after he was found in breaking of party's rules.

According to Online, he resigned after University of Karachi declared his bachelor degree fake while MQM's press release said the party suspended the basic membership of Asif Steven since he overruled party's policy and discipline.

Asif Steven, in a press release, said that he had resigned on personal ground.

"I was not feeling myself able to work for the welfare of Christian community due to personal reasons. That is why I have decided to resign," Steven said.

According to the agency's sources, Steven submitted his BA degree at the time of filing his nomination paper on a reserved seat in 2008 general elections. As per directives of the Supreme Court, his degree was sent to UoK for rechecking, which was proven fake. -Agencies
