PTI workers disrespected MQM martyrs monument: Rizvi
Addressing a press conference here, MQM leader Haider Abbas Rizvi said a large number of PTI workers reached Jinnah Ground without facing any obstacle. He said children were playing cricket and Imran Ismail also joined them.
In the meanwhile, he said, PTI workers ridiculed and tore up panaflex and posters of Altaf Hussain. They [PTI] workers also disrespected monument of martyrs, he claimed.
He said ethics also hold importance in politics and democracy. He was of the view that PTI attempted to use force today to reinforce their agenda.
Election commission should summon political parties concerned and devise a code of conduct to prevent such disorders ahead of by-elections, added the MQM leader.
He said PTI leaders tried to hold press conference with force at Karachi Press Club. When the KPC management barred Imran Ismail from hogging someone else’s time, PTI leaders misbehaved with the press club members and left.
MQM-nominated candidate Kanwar Naveed Jameel will emerge victorious from NA-246 constituency, maintained Rizvi.
Rizvi said NA-246 is a stronghold of MQM since 1988 where admirers of MQM chief Altaf Hussain have been residing and they would vote MQM to victory.
