PSP launches ‘unprecedented’ protest movement in Karachi
KARACHI: Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) chairman Mustafa Kamal has announced to launch protest movement from today (April 6) aimed at “resolving problems facing the masses,” ARY News reported.
“Either problems faced by the people will resolve in the wake of our protest or we will die in this crusade” he told a press conference today.
Kamal announced to stage sit-in outside Karachi Press Club until resolution of issues of the public.
He threatened to hinder government operations if the rulers didn’t pay heed to the prevailing issues including water shortage in Karachi.
The PSP chief said he did not come out of his house to become a prime minister nor to unseat the sitting one, but to seek provision of basic necessities to the residents of the city.
“My kids need potable water, my kids need quality education, they need hospitals, my youth need employment,” he said referring to the necessities of youth of the megapolis.
He said no law or constitution of the country barred him from asking for the basic facilities nor the authorities from providing those.
Kamal said water was a basic right of every citizen without discrimination of any caste, creed or color. The people must be given their right. Bulk water supply project, K-4 will not resolve issue of water, hence K-4-II should be launched, he said.
“Politics of the rulers will be buried, if the issues are not resolved. The protest movement will end with our breaths. The struggle to protect Karachi from robbers will continue,” he said.
He also demanded from the government to restore Sindh Building Control Authority back into Karachi Building Control Authority and hand it over to the city government. His demands also included fulfilling the need of buses in the metropolis.
He also said K-Electric would have to return the money looted in the name of overbilling.
