Mutahida leaders unveil more concerns over Karachi issues

From Zeeshan Mirza

KARACHI: Pak Sarzameen Party chief Mustafa Kamal Sunday said that the Sindh capital has been deprived of basic fa-cilities like water.
According to the former mayor, the financial headquarters of the country has become a hub of problems. “Karachi lacks electricity potable water and a proper sewer system.” He said that the Sindh government was selling water to the public by installing hydrants in Karachi. Because of Pakistan People’s Party, not a single drop of extra water has come into Karachi for the last fifteen years.
While raising the demand for stepped-up efforts to create jobs to save the youth from being spoiled, he said, adding that the youth of Karachi are committing suicide with degrees in their hands. The Sindh government has not given a single job to the youth of Karachi and Hyderabad in two and a half years.
He continued: “If 250,000 jobs were given to the youth, 40% out of them should be given to Karachi’s public but Kara-chi’s quota was also captured by PPP by creating a fake domicile.
“The ruling party is not making any difference despite all the injustices. A city of more than 30 million people was cut in half. In the name of disputed constituencies, all the rights of Karachi were violated.”
MQM convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said Pakistan is passing through the most critical moment in its history with no one to judge. “The economy is taking its last breath and it will sink, taking the politics with it. Pakistan is at a critical juncture and there is no one to take decisions”

While talking about former President Pervez Musharraf on his passing, he said that “Today, the Mohsin of Pakistan, the son of this city, who had mercy on this city, is no more. Today is an important day in many ways.
