Tuesday, April 23, 2013 - Karachi—The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain said that the MQM believed in the politics of serving the people, and its struggle was not aimed at acquiring power for the sake of power.

He said this while addressing the office-bearers, workers and nominated candidates of the MQM in Mirpurkhas. He announced the names of the MQM candidates from Mirpurkhas for the coming elections.

He said that the elected representatives of the MQM lived among the people and remained with them in their happiness and sorrow while others make hollow claims at the time of elections for deceiving the people. Whether it was severe draught or the devastation caused by heavy flooding, the MQM always helped the affected people. Serving the humanity is the manifesto of the MQM, and it always served people, whether it was in government or not.

He said, this time some so-called nationalist leaders have also come in the field in order to takeadvantage by fomenting differences among residents of Sindh by making hateful speeches. “The opportunist elements should know that discrimination of new and old Sindhis has ended as those whose lives and deaths tie with Sindh are all Sindhis”.

He said that the politically aware people of Mirpurkhas belonging to diverse ethnic backgrounds, and religious minorities were getting united under the flag of the MQM, and they would frustrate every conspiracy with their unity.

He said that Sindh contributes nearly 70 percent of the total revenues in the national exchequer, but it was denied of its legitimate rights. The MQM was the only political party that has steadfastly struggled for the rights of the people of Sindh. Whether it was the issue of Kala Bagh dam or the distribution of resources through the NFC award, the MQM had always fought the case of Sindh forcefully.

He said that he would never compromise on the rights of Sindh and would sacrifice his life instead of doing a deal on the rights of Sindh. He paid rich tribute to female workers and said that the MQM would give surprising results on May 11 due to their hard work.

He said that farmers, peasants, workers and students belonging to all social and ethnic backgrounds would visit polling stations on the polling day and cast their vote in favour of the MQM.

He announced names of candidates for national and provincial assemblies.
