Former interior minister and central leader of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Rehman Malik has rejected the allegations of former mayor of Karachi Mustafa Kamal, terming them “baseless” and “concocted”.
Reacting to the accusations levelled by Kamal, Malik said that it was not his duty to dictate the declaration of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement.
He said his meetings with the MQM chief were in connection with strengthening the allied governments in Centre and Sindh province, adding that either Governor Ishratul Ebad or senior MQM leader Farooq Sattar was part of those meetings.
Malik further said that being the interior minister, Altaf Hussain had never his support for ‘criminal’ workers. “I only represented my party, PPP, in meetings with MQM chief Altaf Hussain,” he added.
