LONDON: If my party workers fail to reform themselves, they will lose me as their leader forever, Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain said on Friday.

Altaf was speaking to members of the interim Rabita Committee and other party workers.

“I never taught MQM workers to take bribes, be corrupt or put undue pressure on people for favours,” he said.

Addressing the issue of his stay away from home, Altaf told his party members that his family members went abroad to save their lives.

He said his family worked hard while living in a foreign land.

Delving more into his family and political affairs, the MQM chief said he never favoured his family with gains from his political movement.

“I did not give party tickets to my relatives in elections,” he added.

I would like to than PTI and Imran Khan for this turnaround in the attitude of Altaf Hussain. Altaf Hussain has put himself out there for his Party. I did not hear that Nawaz Sharif saying anything to his Party member to keep them away from wrong Path. Pres. Zardari did not even spoke to his party members ever since he moved into Presidential House. Altaf Hussain just feels like "Better late than never". I am happy that MQM is reforming itself and come back to Party core value of service to people without pride and prejudice.

@farooq: hmmm. MQM never took our "Qurbani ke khaalen" at gunpoint. We always donated to local masjids and that is exactly what we told MQM workers when they would show up at our house.
