Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s Coordination Committee’s deputy Convener, Dr Farooq Sattar, said here on Saturday that poor and middle-class candidates nominated for National and provincial assemblies’ seats on merit were the trustees of Altaf Hussain for bringing revolution and a positive change in the country.
Speaking at a mammoth meeting held at Azizabad’s Lal Qila ground for announcing the final names of MQM’s candidates for the 2013 general elections from across the country, the MQM leader said that it was for the first time that the MQM, being a representative party of the country’s poor and middle class people, was taking part from every nook and cranny of the country and, Inshallah, the day was not far away when the Muttahida would rule throughout the country.
He said that candidates contesting elections from the MQM platform were those who had been casting their votes for the last 65 years, but it is with their empowerment by Altaf Hussain, they have now become the vote getters.
Highlighting the importance of the ensuing general elections, Dr Farooq Sattar opined that it would be a direct contest between those doing ideological politics and those doing hereditary politics.
MQM Coordination Committee’s deputy conveners, Anis Ahmed Kaimkhani, Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Ms Nasreen Jalil, Dr Nusrat Shaukat and other members of the committee were also present on the occasion.
The MQM Coordination Committee’s members Ashfaq Manghi, Gulfraz Khan Kattak, Yousuf Shahwani and Iftikhar Akber Randhawa, also spoke on the occasion in Sindhi, Punjabi, Baluchi and Pushto languages.
