MULTAN: No one can prevent the creation of South Punjab, said Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Deputy Convener Dr Farooq Sattar on Sunday.
Addressing a public gather in Multan, Sattar said that the MQM was the first party to submit a resolution in the National Assembly in favour of a new province in Punjab. “MQM will do everything possible to make South Punjab a reality,” he said.
Speaking about the problems faced by the region, Sattar said spurious pesticides, low quality seeds and expensive fertilisers have greatly harmed the agriculture sector of the area, while the people are faced with poverty, unemployment, inflation and load-shedding.
“The MQM will solve all the problems if it came to power,” he said.
Sattar also said that now is the time when people have to decide whether they will save the country or will let it be ruled by cruel rulers.
“Certain elements are afraid of the MQM’s popularity in Punjab but MQM will contest elections from Punjab with full force,” Sattar said.
