KARACHI: The people of Karachi have rejected the mandate of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) as the party lost its hold on PS-127, Malir, claimed Pak Sar Zameen (PSP) party chief Mustafa Kamal.
He was addressing a press conference along with PSP leaders Raza Haroon and Anees Ahmed Advocate at Pakistan House on Friday where he added that the people of Malir have rejected MQM chief Altaf Hussain, along with Farooq Sattar and company.
He added that the MQM, after disassociating itself from its founding chief, should re-contest elections from all the constituencies it won as it should get rid of the mandate achieved in the name of Altaf.
Kamal added that PSP will not even field its candidates if MQM agrees to do this.
However, he demanded the relevant authorities to reopen MQM's headquarters, Nine Zero, which was sealed after the incidents of violence on August 22.
