MQM Pakistan’s December rally will be eye-opener for opposition: Sattar
KARACHI: Head of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Pakistan Dr Farooq Sattar said that the most outspoken critics of his party in the country would witness a real power show next month which would be too good to be true for them.
Speaking to a workers convention of the breakaway faction of MQM in Karachi on Sunday, he said that his party would organise a grand rally on December 25 in the city, which would be enough to send out a strong message for his political competitors.
Dr Sattar said, so far, his party just showed a trailer of its popularity, the real show would be on the day of MQM Pakistan’s rally.
Following a four-month legal struggle and uncertainty, Akhtar resumed office as Karachi Mayor last Thursday, a day after he was released from prison when an anti-terrorism court (ATC) granted him bail in the last of 39 cases against him.
Dr Sattar continued that if his party could only stage a three-day sit-in, not only a long-delayed population consensus would be held in the country but also the quota-system would be abolished.
The MQM senior leader also criticised the Prime Minister’s House that the infamous Panama Scandal was not just any ordinary case of corruption.
He also accused that a huge portion of a relatively privileged segment in the society also do not pay taxes.
