KARACHI: The Karachi Metropolitan Corporation’s City Council unanimously passed a resolution against Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) chairperson Mustafa Kamal for uttering foul language against incumbent city mayor Waseem Akhtar, asking the former to tender an apology.
“This house condemns the use of filthy language by former city nazim Mustafa Kamal against the respected Mayor Wasim Akhtar; and warns him to restrain himself from using such verbiage in future, otherwise he would be himself responsible for any public reaction,” reads a resolution unanimously passed by the council.
The city council’s session was held at the KMC building with Karachi Deputy Mayor Dr Arshad Abdullah Vohra in chair.
At the council’s session, Muttahida Qaumi Movement – Pakistan’s Advocate Arif Khan tabled the resolution, asking the former city mayor to retract his foul remarks and seek apology from Akhtar who was associated with MQM-Pakistan.
If Kamal continued to use such words against the mayor, the whole city will come out on streets, Khan warned and added such insulting remarks are highly unbecoming of a person who himself had been the city mayor.
Slamming PSP’s ‘million march’, he said even a child knew that the PSP chairperson would be released shortly after his arrest.
The council adopted overall 14 resolutions, including the one against Mustafa Kamal which was approved unanimously.
Condemnation of the killing of labourers in Gawadar, the attack on the convoy of Senate Deputy Chairman Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri in Mastung, the firing on a census team in Chaman and the demand for up-gradation of leprosy hospital were among other resolutions adopted by the council.
