KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain called an emergency workers’ conference in Karachi on Saturday. In his telephonic address, Hussain alleged that the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N), along with the “so-called” Sindh nationalist parties, wants to break Pakistan but the MQM will not let PML-N’s dream come true.
“The PML-N has looted the rights of people in Seraiki and Bahawalpur provinces. Altaf Hussain, till his last breath, will fight for the rights of the people in South Punjab and Hazara,” he vowed.
He said that PML-N workers welcoming the train march of Awami Tehreek and prejudiced elements, backing those who were out to spread unrest in Sindh, was proof that the PML-N was conspiring against Pakistan. Hussain vowed that the MQM would never allow the PML-N to succeed in its nefarious designs.
Local government system
Commenting on the recently passed Sindh Local Government Ordinance and the criticism against it, Hussain said that the people who are opposing the implementation of the system in Sindh are enemies of democracy.
“The entire world works on a specific system. The local government system is the basis of democracy,” he maintained and added that the parliament has no importance without this system.
“We will bring the local government system in Sindh. Those opposing it are against Pakistan,” Hussain remarked.
“Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s so-called leaders should stop being concerned about Sindh and should think about their own province. I also want to tell those leaders that the Pakhtuns in Karachi are with MQM, not with ANP (Awami National Party),” he said.
He further called to the people of Sindh to make nationalist parties’ strike on September 13 unsuccessful by staying united.
