Altaf’s warning over unmet promises

KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain has warned the government that if it continues reneging on promises, he will ask the people if they still want to stay in the Pakistan People’s Party-led coalition.

In the context of certain assurances given to the MQM after which it had put on hold its decision to part ways with the government, Mr Hussain said the MQM was not conspiring against the present set-up and, therefore, the government should also not deceive it.

Mr Hussain said that the MQM had supported the government despite the fact that it never fulfilled its promises. “Please don’t take the democratic attitude of the MQM as its weakness…the MQM is not hungry for power…it wants to bring about a revolution.”

He demanded of the rulers expenses on the Presidency and the Prime Minister’s House be curtailed and the amount be spent on the rehabilitation of the flood-affected people and for poverty alleviation.

He paid tribute to the people of Orangi who showed restrained despite the indiscriminate firing by terrorists and exercised their right of vote in favour of MQM candidate Saifuddin Khalid. He said the people proved that they believed in ballot and not in bullet. “People of Karachi are peace loving. Anyone who wants to live in Karachi should live here with peace and those want to carry out terrorist acts should leave the city,” he added.

He urged the federal and provincial governments to ensure arrest of those giving shelter to terrorists and kidnappers.

Mr Hussain said that with the peaceful holding of by-polls, the MQM proved that it wanted to ensure peace across the country.

He also paid homage to slain MPA Syed Raza Haider and advised the MPA-elect to serve the people with complete dedication.
