TEXT OF PRESS CONFERENCE
First of all we are thankful to you for coming to attend this Press Conference.
You are well aware that every type of high-handed tactic was used in the past against Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) that has had its origin in the poor and middle class segment of the society. Conspiracies were hatched to keep the deprived disadvantaged people of the country away from the MQM, and persistent negative propaganda was done for this purpose. Although the exploitative forces did not desist from any type of persecution and cruelty, the MQM has not only spread in the cities, towns and villages of Sindh but also its message is getting wide acceptance in the Punjab, Baluchistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, Northern Areas, Azad Kashmir and the Tribal Areas. This became possible because of the enlightened and progressive leadership of Mr. Altaf Hussain, immortal sacrifices of our martyrs and the untiring struggle of our determined workers. People across the country are now uniting on the MQM platform under the galvanizing leadership of Mr. Altaf Hussain.
Public, by and large, has come to the conclusion after testing all other political parties that the MQM is the only political party in the country that truly represents the poor and the middle class people of the country and there are no feudal lords, chieftains and big-business persons in the MQM. There is no dynastic political culture in the MQM, and it is not known by any particular family either. The MQM has sent clean, honest and capable people from the poor and middle class to the assemblies instead of big names from the rich privileged class. It is because of this that the popularity of the MQM is increasing continuously and people from a varied social spectrum and different spheres of lives are joining the MQM after being inspired by the political philosophy of Mr Altaf Hussain.
We believe that it is these clean people who can bring a real change in the country. Although every party in the country is raising the slogan of a revolution, but it is a fact that the people who have been tested time and again cannot change the system and transform the fate of the people.
Now that people from the length and breadth of the country are contacting us for joining the MQM, we have decided to start a membership campaign. We feel great pleasure in announcing that the MQM will start its membership campaign in every part of the country since 9th February 2012. Camps will be set up for this purpose throughout the country where elected representatives, office-bearers and workers of the MQM will be present to facilitate the people and inform them about the political philosophy and ideology of Mr Altaf Hussain.
We appeal to the members of the public to strengthen hands of Mr Altaf Hussain for bringing a real change in the country. We ask them to rise to the occasion and play their role for the rights of the poor and middle class people of the country.
