PTI may call off August 14 march: MQM

MQM leaders appeal to all parties to take steps with caution, keeping in view the critical situation of the country.


Web Desk July 29, 2014

LONDON: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) might call off its tsunami march scheduled for August 14 in Islamabad, leaders of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) claimed on Tuesday.

PTI chief Imran Khan had announced a million-man march to the federal capital demanding that the incumbent electoral process should be changed.

However, MQM leaders Tariq Javed, Qasim Ali and Mustafa Azizabadi - in a statement published on the party’s website - said that credible sources have informed them that Imran will withdraw his march call and that this announcement will be made soon.

Further, these senior leaders appealed to all parties to take steps with caution, keeping in view the critical situation of the country.

This statement was issued by the leaders after offering the Eid prayers.

On July 29, Imran ruled out negotiations with the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz after acknowledging that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had accepted his party’s demands, saying the offer had come too late.

“Now we’ll meet on August 14,” he emphatically said, while speaking exclusively with Express News from Bannu.

@H Chaudhry: I knew it! Until you Run a scam on national level, rob from Islamabad, send Army to crush any political uprising, sue a rtd general, take & distribute unlimited loans from National banks then sell the same bank to same lenders for pennies, have own steel & sugar mills competing against locals... You are not a Recognized Political party at National level.

That's True isn't it, Ch Sahab? €£¥

Yes there will be plundering as usual by every one including the MQM (Don't tell me any Fabrication of his homes in London and its suburbs). These things will continue to happen until we the people of Pakistan start holding our politicians, army, judiciary, and most importantly ourselves accountable.

I see your other comments but please stop. No there is no national problem solving by mqm, this is not a party of middle class or any thing. It was a good concept and right concept but like anything else mqm is just another political party that has been part of every government in some capacity since 1988 and has failed miserably. They talk about quota system in Sind, what have they done about it? I am a graduate of NED university and was born and raised in Karachi, I never saw them do anything other than just be a part of every Government.
