SUKKUR: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan leader Khawaja Izharul Hassan has said that his party will not support any unconstitutional or undemocratic move to bring change in Sindh’s political setup, including imposition of governor’s rule.
Mr Haq told journalists at circuit house on Monday that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) had not yet taken his party into confidence over ‘the change’ though the ruling party was making contacts with all parties to consult over fast changing political situation in the province.
He said the party leaders would be meeting federal information minister Fawad Chaudhry that day. “We’ll see what he has to say” and whether PTI considered MQM-P their allies, he said.
Constitutionally or democratically speaking, he said, the demand for changing the embattled chief minister was the right of the opposition parties. One could not make courts change their decisions by gathering mobs on streets, holding public meetings or speaking incessantly in talk shows on TV channels, he said.
He said the people who used to moralise MQM-P on benefits of facing courts over submission of adverse reports of joint investigation teams needed to gather some courage now to face the law.
“We have been demanding all along for the past 30 years that those who are involved in corruption and looting the country’s resources be hanged,” he said.
Mr Haq said that nobody was after the Sindh government. It was its own enemy since despite making tall claims to have spent Rs1500 billion on the province there was not even one union council in entire Sindh, including Sukkur, which could at least boast of having uninterrupted supply of clean drinking water, he said.
He said the people who had deserted MQM-P to other parties had no real respect, he therefore advised them to come back. Important decisions were being made about Sindh, including Sukkur, he said.
