The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has come down hard on comments made by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Karachi President Shamim Naqvi by calling for action to be taken against him, as well as, claiming that party supremo Imran Khan would not be in line to be the country’s next premier without their support, Express News reported on Sunday.

Earlier in the day Naqvi stated that, “We have joined hands with the MQM out of compulsion to reach 172 seats in the National Assembly”.

“We [MQM] lent our support to the PTI because the PPP has always disappointed the people of Sindh,” MQM leader Faisal Sabzwari said while addressing a press conference.

“If statements like this continue to come out of the PTI ranks then it’ll be difficult to work together in the future,”the MQM leader said.

“Those politicians that target me do it for their own political gains,” Karachi Mayor Wasim Akhtar said.

“He [Naqvi] should ask his party leadership how vital we [MQM] are in their future plans,” he added.

He said that remarks such as this are only made for cheap political publicity.

MQM leader Khawaja Izharul Hassan called for Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen to take action against Naqvi.

    Bhattakhoor, opportunists will always exploit any government whether it’s PTI’s or PPP’s government. IK must get rid of them and their exploiting attitude now. These MQM so called leaders are actually low level thugs.
    Please IK get more independents and go without them. You will have this problem all along.

    This is always an issue of hung parliament Recommend

    As usual MQM has started crying. PTI should act very responsibly. Because it needs MQM support at the moment. Wait till PTI performs. MQM will be wiped out after that just like JUIF, QWP, JI and ANP.Recommend

    @raghu:
    just wait PTI will be wipe out as soon as people see the real face of PTI and immature MNA and MPA’s underperformance. PTI exist just because of one man, if something happen to IK what is the future of PTI. MQM still exist without their founder. Recommend

    Statement made by Naqvi are irrelevant and out of context. This shows the immaturity and inexperience of PTI guys. Naqvi should realize that MQM has nothing to lose. They have had a raw deal in the past st the hands of PPP and PML N. I am an ardent supporter of PTI and this behaviourr by Naqvi sets a bad evample and a difficult position in a fragile working relationship. Recommend

    True, “Shamim Naqvi” should have kept his mouth shut, rather than uttering irresponsible statement at a sensitive time. We all understand that PTI is the only hope to bring together all segments and ensure unity. Such stupid statements on behalf of a respected PTI party risks the integrity and may lead to racial sentiments.

    MQM should be wiped out of Karachi sooner than later for everyone’s good. Too many lives have been lost due to them. Recommend
