Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has called the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) a rejected party, claiming that the MQM-P has accused him of ignoring Karachi in development schemes. However, development schemes worth Rs479 billion have been launched in the city, and 1,072 schemes worth Rs991.79 billion are in the works through the Annual Development Programme.
It was said to the media on Saturday following the opening of the Karachi Neighborhood Improvement Project’s freshly constructed road from Saudabad Chowrangi to Thado Nullah-Soomar Kandani Village, which included the RCC Bridge in Khokhrapar, Malir (KNIP).
“They [the MQM-P] are insecure after watching the city’s rapid progress and are well aware that they would be entirely removed by the PPP [Pakistan People’s Party] in the next general elections,” the CM stated.
He claimed that instead of opposing the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), which had robbed the MQM of its assembly seats in the previous general elections, the MQM-P joined them as a coalition partner in the Center and that they had now started levelling baseless accusations against the Sindh government out of frustration.
“You were rejected in the last elections, and you will be rejected again in the next elections because we serve the people of this city with our hearts and souls,” Shah added.
