MQM-P to back PPP’s Murtaza Wahab in Senate seat poll

MQM-P to back PPP’s Murtaza Wahab in Senate seat poll

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) has announced support for Pakistan Peoples Party candidate Barrister Murtaza Wahab in the upcoming election to a Senate seat which recently fell vacant after the resignation of another PPP leader and now MPA, Saeed Ghani.

The announcement to this effect was made on Saturday when leaders of the MQM-P and the PPP addressed a joint press conference.

Earlier, a PPP delegation, led by the president of the party’s provincial chapter, Nisar Khuhro, visited the new headquarters of the MQM-P in the Bahadurabad area to get the opposition party’s support for Wahab’s election to the vacant Senate seat belonging to Sindh.

Speaking on the occasion, MQM-P leader Kanwar Naveed Jamil said his party had decided to lend support to the PPP’s candidate. He said he had informed the PPP about maltreatment meted out to imprisoned MQM-P workers, as well as about raids and arbitrary arrests of activists of his party.

Jamil said the PPP had been informed that in Karachi, such police officials had been posted who were completely oblivious of the city’s geography. He added that issues concerning the deteriorated civic state of the city and limited powers available to the municipal institutions were also discussed in the meeting.

He said the PPP leader had assured the MQM-P that he would talk to the Sindh chief minister to get those problems resolved.

Khuhro thanked the opposition for announcing support for the PPP candidate. He said dialogue was conducted between the two parties in the spirit of democracy as they were the two biggest parliamentary groups in the Sindh Assembly.
