Nabil Gabol quits PPP, joins MQM

- March 17, 2013 - Updated 1658 PKT - From Web Edition

KARACHI: Nabil Gabol has officially left the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and joined the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM). Gabol announced his decision during a news conference at MQM headquarters Nine Zero.


Gabol was accorded warm welcome upon his arrival at Nine Zero by members of the MQM’s Coordination Committee and party workers.


Gabol said that PPP was no longer the party of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, therefore, he decided to quit it after 25-year long affiliation.


Praising MQM Chief Altaf Hussain’s leadership qualities, he said that the true leader considers his workers like his children, which is demonstrated by Altaf Hussain.


The former PPP leader further said that the MQM chief had shown concern for his well being while his former party had disregarded his constituency (Lyari). “It is better for me to leave the PPP and help the people of Lyari.”


He said his task in the MQM would be to bridge differences and work towards establishing brotherhood among different ethnicities. Gabol added that he always felt Nine Zero was his second home.


Speaking during the news conference, MQM Deputy Convenor, Farooq Sattar welcomed Gabol to the party, saying his inclusion would help further to achieve the vision of Altaf Hussain across Pakistan and especially in Sindh.

It is a good decision by Nabil although it is late but a wise decision. People living in Sindh Province need safety of lives and peace which PPP have failed to provide. Hope in coming times Musharraf, MQM could lead to run the forthcoming 5 years and save from destroying country. At least they will not sit on American's lap and would not become greedy dogs.

It is time for the National Party of Dr. AbdulMalik Baloch, the Lyari Aman Committee, the PML-N and the JI to field joint PA & NA candidates in all Karachi constituencies with significant Baloch population, particularly in Lyari.Given fair elections, the PML of Nawaz Sharif is likely to win a landslide victory. It will be a pity if the Lyariites and other Karachi Balochs bet on losing horses.

This should be taken another blackmailing stick of MQM. Nabil would serve a bargain chip in future. But do not ignore another possibility that he was implanted into MQM by PPP to work as a CID person for the later. Both MQM and PPP are playing games and making loots in Karachi. May Allah rid Pakistan from MQM and PPP. Both have looted Karachi. Wake up Karachites.
