KARACHI: Several days back the Former Health Minister belonging from MQM Dr Sagheer joined hands with Mustafa Kamal. Which turned Kamal’s un-named party from two-men to three-men. And now on Thursday in an important press conference held at Karachi’s ex-mayor house two other MQM former leaders, Waseem Aftab and Iftikhar Alam have teamed up with Kamal.
“Today we welcome former Rabita Committee member Waseem Aftab and MPA Iftikhar Alam in our party as they have decided to join our cause,” Kamal told journalists at the start of the important presser.
Aftab is honored as the first head of the Karachi Tanzeemi Committee and All-Pakistan Mohajir Qaumi Movement, on the other hand Iftikhar Alam is the sitting MPA from PS-106.
Later in the press conference, Iftikhar Alam announced his resignation from the seat of Member of Provnical Assembly and also parted his ways from MQM.
“I announce to resign from my seat of Sindh Assembly and part ways from MQM and its chief Altaf Hussain,” Alam said at the press conference while announcing his resignation from provincial assembly seat.
“I had to pick one of the two options, to become a part of wrongdoings in the party or distance myself from them. It is time to rid of the politics of targeted killings and raise our voice against it from this new platform. We are here on a one point agenda to make this country’s foundations strong,” he further added.
Iftikhar Alam said that today we belong to a community which represents the literate people of the country but today MQM workers have become a sign of fear and bad reputation.
While commenting about the MQM workers, Alam told that “Hundreds have sacrificed their lives, hundreds yet live in exile.”
