Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain has said that no democracy was real without local government system because the latter was the nursery of democracy. MQM was a peaceful party so its attitude to stay peaceful should not be considered a weakness. MQM was a giant and well-organised political party and efforts for breaking it would bear no fruit.
He expressed these views while addressing the 26th annual labour division convention at Lal Qilla Ground in Azizabad on Thursday evening.
PPP should behave sanely and should not consider it as lord of the people but their facilitators. The MQM had the potential to bring the PPP in government and could also throw them out of power in just a few days through a movement. Leaders of Sindh should avoid delivering speeches of hatred, tending to damage the peace and harmony.
The deteriorated law and order had led to a situation that it had become a crime to hoist the national flag in Balochistan and the situation was the result of inefficiency and negligence. Genocide of Hazara Shias had become a routine.
On the other hand, the criminals had been allowed to operate freely and the law enforcement agencies had been avoiding arresting the criminals despite the fact that they knew all about the criminals.
In Punjab, Police encounters with the criminals had become a routine and crime rate was fast escalating there but the rulers had failed to devise a strategy to curb the escalating crime rate.
The MQM had supported the Pakistan People’s Party for 4 years and 11 months but the PPP had stabbed the MQM in its back so the MQM had no other option except to part ways from the PPP.
He said that if the MQM had parted ways earlier, the PPP government could have been toppled long ago. It was a misery that the MQM was betrayed by political parties the MQM had formed an alliance with.
He said he was wondering why the PPP was ruling the country on the patterns of British because the PPP was avoiding nominating the elected representatives and choose to appoint the non-elected.
