LAHORE: Chairman Sindh Progressive Movement Dr Qadir Magsi, expressing his no confidence in the 1973 Constitution, has demanded ‘restructuring of Pakistan’ in the light of the historic Pakistan Resolution of 1940.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday, the nationalist leader stated that all units of the Federation should be given equal rights, which was vital to put an end to the crisis in the country. ‘The 1973 Constitution doesn’t guarantee the protection of our rights as it itself has been subverted twice by dictators,” said Magsi, while answering a question. Criticising the PPP-MQM alliance, Dr Qadir Magsi stated it seemed that that the establishment had surrendered before terrorists.

Qadir Magsi said even the Chief Minister of the province had no authority to take action against any SHO of Karachi. To a question about the possibility of his party’s alliance with the PML-N in the next general elections, Qadir Magsi said Nawaz Sharif lost credibility as leader in Sindh after he backed out of his commitment of boycotting the polls which he had made with the APDM parties. He said the property of Ayub Khan’s relatives should be confiscated for his sin of selling water of three rivers of the country to India at the cost of national interest.
