KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Manzoor Wassan has asserted that there will soon be very few parties standing in competition with PPP.
He said that the parties Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan, MQM-London, Haqiqi and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) will be soon be dissolved. All political parties will be reemerging with a new name, he said, adding that MQM’s name will soon not be there anymore.
“The people of Karachi and Hyderabad will see a change in the coming days,” he said.
Wassan’s comments come at a time when MQM-P chief Farooq Sattar has alleged that members of PSP were forcibly trying to convert MQM-P’s leaders’ allegiance to PSP.
Sattar himself, along with a few others from his party, was recently accused of retaining contacts with the founder of MQM-L by former party member Salman Mujahid Baloch.
Earlier on Wednesday, a member of MQM-P was shot dead in Hyderabad. According to the police, party member Dr Noshad was killed in a targeted attack by motorcyclists near Rasheed Bhayya Park.
