QUETTA: Pak-Sarzameen Party (PSP) Chairman Syed Mustafa Kamal on Wednesday said that his party would get the largest number of seats from Sindh and Balochistan in general elections 2018.
Addressing a press conference at Quetta Press Club, he said that he would always remember the affection and hospitality of the people of Balochistan.
He said that his party has focused on Sindh and Balochistan, adding that he had presented PSP’s manifesto to the political people of Balochistan during his two-day visit to Quetta.
He pointed out that PSP was functioning in eight districts of Balochistan, saying that PSP would eliminate unemployment from the province if it came to power.
“Provision of free medicines in government-run hospitals would be ensured and the funds of National Finance Commission (NFC) award would be brought to the level of the districts for the region’s development,” he said.
He said that PSP was gaining popularity among the masses, and he appealed to the people to support his party in the next general elections.
NA cannot ‘qualify’ someone disqualified by SC: Speaking at the Press Club, Kamal also said that it wasn’t possible for the National Assembly to “qualify” someone who was disqualified by the Supreme Court.
He said that Tuesday was a black day in the history of democracy, adding that those who picked the right paths were never appreciated.
Speaking about Karachi’s situation, he said that heaps of garbage were seen everywhere in the city and that locals were deprived even of clean water. He further said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would only be completed if it was handled properly.
Karachi’s youth also deserve a second chance: The PSP chief also remarked that “Karachi’s misguided youth” who have either gone “missing” or been imprisoned deserve a second chance like Baloch rebels who laid down their arms.
“Some 350 youngsters of Karachi are missing while another 1,800 are imprisoned,” he said. “I stepped into politics to bring the misled youths of Karachi back on track.”
He also commented on the much-discussed recent talks of an alliance between PSP and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), saying that his party had never joined hands with MQM-P but had only agreed to merge with it.
He remarked that Farooq Sattar only wanted a seat in the National Assembly and that PSP had exposed MQM-P founder’s real face.
Speaking about his recent visit to Balochistan, Kamal said that his party had an ambition of joining people in one bond, and that healthy political activities would be witnessed in the province soon. He urged the people of Balochistan to raise their voices against discrimination.
He remarked that military operations were not enough to address the pressing needs of the province, including the lack of basic amenities and access to education for the masses, saying that developmental works were equally important.
