KARACHI - Pak Sarzameen Party leader Mustafa Kamal on Thursday demanded the government to ban the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, as Altaf Hussain’s link with the Indian Spy Agency- RAW – was not a hidden chapter anymore.

Talking to media at his residence here, the PSP leader said that Altaf Hussain has confessed before the Scotland Yard about his party relations with the RAW while Britain's former deputy head of Mission in Karachi, Shaharyar Khan Niazi has also claimed that the MQM chief has made a written agreement with the Indian spy agency. It is about time, the government should declare its stance over this sensitive issue, said Kamal demanding to place ban on all organisations those have connection with the RAW. Kamal said that former interior minister Rehman Malik seemed like an MQM member as Altaf had used him for monitoring purposes.

He alleged that the MQM chief is expert in murdering people. “He creates first team to accomplish his agenda and then eliminates first the team bringing up second team in action,” said Kamal adding the MQM leaders will get into trouble if he started speaking the truth.

Targeting MQM senior deputy convener Farooq Sattar, Kamal said Sattar is an innocent person; he is the agent of an Indian agent and it is his job.

“Sattar should listen to Altaf Hussain`s speeches before taunting others.” Kamal said efforts were being made to rescue the sinking boat and Sattar believed the PSP leaders could not speak against the MQM. The youth must not be part of the MQM’s team; however the MQM workers should be added to the national stream. He said the MQM missing individuals should be recovered and made part of the society, suggested the PSP leader.

Kamal stated that he would visit Hyderabad and Mirpurkhas to meet with people as part of the PSP’s political activities.

PPP DEMANDS

ACCOUNTABILITY OF KE

The Karachi Electric has failed to manage the gap between supply and demand despite there is gradual increase in temperature which is likely soar to its apex in mid of April and start of May. The KE has also failed to procure furnace oil as per demand despite historical decline in oil prices in the international market and has kept the furnace oil-based electricity production units since past many years.

The federal government should take notice and direct the KE management to avoid power loadshedding during high temperature, and enhance the capacity for production of electricity. This was stated by Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) provincial lawmakers Sajid Jokhio, Shamim Mumtaz and Shaheena Sher Ali in a joint statement here on Thursday.

They lamented that no national institution is willing to take action against the KE on its wrongdoings. The national institutions are highly active on eliminating terrorist gangs that killed the innocent people. However, no action has so far been taken against the KE despite the fact that the KE has also been proven guilty of above 1200 deaths during heatwave past summer and the NEPRA had also imposed a penalty of Rs10 million on the KE.

It is apparent that no institution would take any action against the KE no matter how much havoc the KE would wreak on the innocent citizens especially its consumers because this company is owned by investors from a Gulf country. No institution dares to initiate action against the KE, which also does not abide any of the law of Pakistan. They said the KE has established a state within state, and the consumers are a real portrayal of utter despondency and helplessness. They demanded the federal government should start stern accountability of the KE, take its control and appoint an administrator and place names of all in KE management in the Exit Control List.
