Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader and Karachi Mayor Wasim Akhtar said that the MQM had no other choice but to join hands with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf as the other parties, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), had already been tested by the people.
Mayor Akhtar said, “The problems of the city are no more a political issue, rather it has now become a human issue.”
“The country is heading to a disaster, therefore, all political parties and organisations must think about Karachi’s problems,” he added.
The MQM leader claimed, “I am playing the role of a bridge between the provincial and the federal government.”
“In such serious conditions, we went to sit with PTI chairman Imran Khan and put up our issues in writing,” he also said.
