MQM will strive to make South Punjab a reality: Farooq Sattar

MULTAN: No one can prevent the creation of South Punjab, said Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Deputy Convener Dr Farooq Sattar on Sunday.

Addressing a public gather in Multan, Sattar said that the MQM was the first party to submit a resolution in the National Assembly in favour of a new province in Punjab. “MQM will do everything possible to make South Punjab a reality,” he said.

Speaking about the problems faced by the region, Sattar said spurious pesticides, low quality seeds and expensive fertilisers have greatly harmed the agriculture sector of the area, while the people are faced with poverty, unemployment, inflation and load-shedding.

“The MQM will solve all the problems if it came to power,” he said.

Sattar also said that now is the time when people have to decide whether they will save the country or will let it be ruled by cruel rulers.

“Certain elements are afraid of the MQM’s popularity in Punjab but MQM will contest elections from Punjab with full force,” Sattar said.

Does not matter what you trick, sindi will not allow split of Sind and we sport them from lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. One Sind only Sind.

@abdul: I am not suggesting that only Karachi holds all the immigrants but saying that the majority are not residing there will be a naive opinion. Your kids are comfortable because they speak punjabi. Think about it!!

PS: I am against MQM politics and support PTI for their true nature towards solving national problems, but unfortunately my vote will go to MQM (no way out).
