KARACHI: Pak Sarzameen Party Chairperson Mustafa Kamal claimed that a member of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supported the workers of Muttahida Qaumi Movement involved in china cutting.
While speaking to media in Karachi, Kamal also alleged that MQM workers switched around papers and engaged in china cutting on August 22, last year. One party was formed in MQM after china cutting, he added.
“PML-N is supporting MQM,” he said, adding that PML-N leaders like people such as Farooq Sattar as they are important to stay in power.
Kamal also alleged that MQM-Pakistan in involved in widespread corruption. “We found out yesterday that Hyderabad mayor is involved in Rs400 million corruption scandal,” he said, adding Hyderabad mayor takes a six percent share on each tender.
He remarked that MQM is spending the nation’s money in their rallies. “Nation’s money being used to fund rallies.”
Municipal authorities are being investigated for many corruption scandals, he said, demanding that Hyderabad mayor should also be investigated.
PSP and MQM had come into limelight last month after they announced to regroup under 'one name, one election symbol.' However, just a day after the announcement, cracks developed in the relations between the two parties.
Dismayed at the response over the alliance, Sattar lashed out at PSP chair and announced to quit politic. However, he reversed the decision at the behest of his mother. Sattar kept reiterating that the partnership between two parties is an alliance, however PSP leaders said that it was a merger.
Reacting to Sattar's statement, Kamal remarked that he met with Sattar because the latter had requested the establishment to bring the two to the table.
Kamal added that Sattar has been giving the impression that whatever decisions PSP takes is at the behest of the establishment.
“Sattar has been meeting us through the establishment since eight months,” he said, saying that the developments are not just 48 hours-long.
Since then, the relations between the two political parties have soured.
