Altaf warns PPP against bullying and threats

KARACHI, Dec 28 : Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain early Tuesday morning ratified the decision of his party’s Rabta Committee to quit the federal cabinet, saying his party was forced to make this decision keeping in view the existing circumstances.

In telephonic address to party workers at Karachi, Hyderabad and Nawabshah the MQM leader said that the party is presently quitting only the cabinet posts, but if the government failed to reform, we will quit the federal and Sindh governments and sit on the opposition benches.

“MQM will continue to stand by the government only if it mends its ways, weeds out corruption and resolve people’s issues such as price hike,” Altaf Hussain said, warning amid thunderous slogans of party workers that an attitude of bullying and threats must not be adopted against MQM.

He said MQM can no longer continue backing government on anti-public decisions, declaring that it is no use holding such ministries which incessantly fail to serve any good to masses.

He advised President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani to work for the development and prosperity of the people. “Had Pakistan People’s Party acted on my advice given time after time, the PPP and people would not have to face the present circumstances,” he regretted.

“Time has still not run out and now the ball is in PPP’s court,” he said, adding MQM is not interested in continuing to be part of the government rather it wants to work for serving the masses facing severe hardship due to relentless price hike and corruption.

Altaf Hussain reiterated that his party wants that the present government completes its five-year term. We continued to stand with the government so that the democracy did not get derailed, he added.

He also came down hard on Pakistan Muslim League-N Chief Nawaz Sharif for criticizing MQM in the latter’s public meeting in Muzaffarabad, and called Nawaz ‘a by-product of dictatorship’.

He said a Muslim League leader is criticizing the MQM, if the Pendora's Box opened this leader will not come out of his Raiwind home.

Altaf Hussain challenged the PML-N chief for a public debate and said he was .trained by the dictators and generals like Zia-ul-Haque and Durrani.

He added that during the government of Nawaz Sharif the Supreme Court of Pakistan was attacked and dishonoured.

Nawaz Sharif indirectly blamed the MQM, a few days ago during his speech in Muzaffarabad, for violence and killings in Karachi.
