Press Conference in Gama Stadium Mirpurkhas
Deputy Convener of the Co-ordination Committee of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Senator Mrs Nasreen Jalil has said that the success of the public meeting of the MQM in Mirpurkhas on 18 March on the occasion of the 29th Foundation Day of the MQM would pave the way for uprooting the archaic feudal system from the country. She was addressing a press conference at the venue of the main gathering that will be held in Mirpurkhas in connection with the foundation day celebrations of the MQM.
Members of the Co-ordination Committee Wasay Jalil, Syed Shakir Ali, and Ashfaq Mangi, in-charge of the Sindh Tanzeemi Committee Umer Qureshi and local office-bearers of the MQM in Mirpurkhas were also present on the occasion.
Addressing the press conference in the Gama Stadium Mrs Jalil said that Mr Altaf Hussain, the founder and leader of the MQM, had been making practical efforts for the rights of the 98 percent people of the country. He also used his God-gifted abilities to remove the misunderstandings created among the oppressed and downtrodden people on the basis of language, ethnicity, sect and religion.
Mrs Jalil said that it had always been the mainstay of the policy of the MQM to empower the educated and capable people in order to bring down the feudal system. The revolutionary message of Mr Hussain was getting wider acceptance among the people, and they were joining the MQM in large numbers.
Mrs Jalil said that the MQM would send educated persons from middle class in assemblies, and it would give them an opportunity to serve the nation in a practical manner. The MQM was the only political party in the country that had maintained democratic traditions, and its elected representatives had set enviable example public service.
Mrs Jalil said that the main programme of the foundation day celebrations of the MQM was being held in Mirpurkhas in order to strengthen relations between new and old Sindhis and to discourage the elements who were always spreading hatred among them.
Mrs Jalil said that the public meeting in Mirpurkhas on 18th March would be a huge success, and it would go a long way in bridging the urban and rural divide in Sindh.
She said that the zeal and fervour among the office-bearers and workers after the announcement of holding of the foundation day programme in Mirpurkhas was highly commendable. She appealed to the people of Mirpurkhas and the adjoining areas, particularly students, farmers, workers and women to attend the public meeting on 18th March in large numbers and make it a historic success.
