The request of USA to provide travelling record of Pakistani passengers was always denied, said Senator A. Rehman Malik.
Senator A. Rehman Malik announced that if such allegations were proved against him, he will resign from the politics voluntarily, Senator A. Rehman Malik. He added that being then Interior Minister he had banned the meetings of NADRA Chairman with foreign delegations and foreign delegations were not allowed to visit NADRA HQ.
