KARACHI: Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Chairman Mustafa Kamal has said his party will never resort to violence to fulfil its demands, but, in fact, will use its only weapon ‘peaceful protest’.

Addressing the party's general workers convention at the PSP protest camp outside the Karachi Press Club (KPC) on Saturday, he said he wanted to make Karachi a role model for all other cities in the country.

"For the betterment of your coming generations, people of Karachi get ready to bear some hardships," he said. "We have already shown our strength by holding demonstration at 12 different points in the city."

PSP protest enters third day

Ten days on, Kamal and other leaderships of PSP have been staging a sit-in demonstration outside the KPC to get their 16 demands, apparently about the betterment and uplift of the city, fulfilled.

The PSP chief said neither he nor his day-one companion Anis Kaimkhani desired to become the prime minister or wanted any other benefits from this protest.

He reiterated that his party will not pack up its protest camp until demands are met, though the campaign has achieved its goals 200 percent.

PSP’s protest enters eighth day

"We have awakened the people of Sindh,” he said. “In these 10 days, thousands of people have called on us and expressed that the PSP’s 16 demands were their (people) own."

Mentioning that the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party had sent its delegation twice to him, he said he had explained to them that there will be no compromise on demands.
