KARACHI - Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain on Sunday while lashing out at the PPP government for postponing the elections of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly seats in Karachi has stated that the endgame of govt has begun from today. In a telephonic address to party general workers meeting held at the Lal Qila Ground from London and listened in several cities, he demanded for annullment of Azad Jammu and Kashmir elections and called upon Chief Justice to take notice of governments manoeuvering in the elections. Altaf Hussain declared that supporting Asif Zardari as President of Pakistan was a mistake. He said that if the MQM was to seperate from the government, then the tenure of the ruling party would come to an end. The destruction of the government has begun today, said the MQM chief. Altaf said that the elections in AJK should be declared null and void and fresh elections should be held as the present elections have become doubtful because of the autocratic steps of the government. He said that the undemocratic, unconstitutional and unethical steps taken by the present government that claims to be the champion of democracy had even shamed the steps of dictators in the past. Altaf directed the MQM Coordination Committee to file petitions in the courts for getting the elections null and void ,adding, that PPP would not have been able to survive if the MQM had not extended its support. Condemning the acts of the present government, he alleged that the PPP-led present government is worse than a dictatorship. He recalled that the MQM nominated Asif Ali Zardari for the office of the President at a time when nobody from his own party was ready to suggest his name. The MQM gave unconditional support to Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani as well, he added. 'The MQM came to their help when it was being said that the government could go any time, he said, adding, that despite everything that the MQM did, the present government betrayed its allied party shamefully. He said that important leaders from the PPP told that if they were not given one seat then they would get the elections postponed. Altaf said meetings were held at every level in the party and it was decided that enough was enough. Why should they be given the seat like this? What had they done? Had they arrested the killers of Benazir Bhutto that they were demanding seats like this?, he stated. In the elections, the MQM had gained victory on two seats and it was expected that the MQM would definitely gain some additional seats as well, he said. The MQM was forced to boycott the elections because of the autocratic steps of the government, Altaf added. He announced that that the June 26th should be observed as a day of condemnation each year to mark the dictatorial actions of the present government. They had trampled democratic principles, ethics and norms in order to force the MQM, the third largest political party of the country, out of the elections, he stated. Recalling the situation in 1993, he said that in 1993 the then Corps Commander of Karachi Lt General Naseer Akhtar had also tried to browbeat the MQM into accepting 4 seats only but the MQM had refused to bow down and boycotted the elections. Altaf further said that now the elections were postponed on the pretext that the Rangers were not ready to provide manpower in Karachi. He said that we were always criticised for supporting the government despite its betrayals. 'We supported the government not for our personal gains for the continuation of the democratic process and for establishing brotherly relations in the province of Sindh, he stated.
