@ Hassan - Let the time decide for it-self!

It does not matter what we both believe will happen - it will all come to the choice a voters makes on the election day ! (including his choice not to vote given the quality of candidates/ options)

If people of Karachi / Pakistan still elect leaders/ political parties that do not represent their mandate nor provide them with basic needs then they are the only ones to blame!

What is happening in Karachi/ Pakistan is not just a coincidence, its a clear failure of elected leaders and the ones who are in or part of ruling government. As MQM is part of this, so it has to take the responsibility of the current situation. And for all those in MQM who say 'we are part of coalition to protect our voters interest, then given the situation I as Voter will have a message to them..'sorry MQM you made a wrong choice as your partnership with PPP has not helped us (those who voted you in) anyway, we would have understood more if you would have chosen to be in opposition'.
