LAHORE - While accepting challenge of dialogue by Muttahida Qaumi Movement Chief Altaf Hussain, central leader of PML-N Khawaja Muhammad Asif has asked the MQM chief to come to Karachi first and the N-League will make visa arrangements. Altaf is a foreign leader of a Pakistani political party, which is responsible for lawlessness in Karachi, and if the MQM quits regionalism and extortions, the PML-N is ready to forge alliance with the party, he said while addressing a news conference here on Tuesday.

Karachi was a city of lights, but on May 12, 2007, around 100 people were killed, besides murder of Karachi High Court lawyers. We deem that the MQM was responsible for these killings, he said. What investigations have been made in this regard? he quizzed, while admitting hat the PML-N had committed mistakes during the decades of 1980 and 1990 and it had already paid for it. He pointed out that since 1985, the MQM had remained part of all the governments. By announcing to part ways with the incumbent democratic dispensation, the party is befooling the masses, as it has separated itself from the coalition, not the government, he maintained, adding that in order to save its government, the PPP was giving room to the MQM. Whenever, the Muttahida sees any government going weak, its attitude has been the same which it is having these days, he opined. He observed that in-house change would not do any good and except mid-term polls, nothing could resolve peoples problems. To a question about President Asif Ali Zardaris statement - 'good governance in Punjab is because of the PPP - Kh Asif quizzed, Why is it not so in Karachi? To a query regarding politicians previous allegiance to the military rulers, he mentioned that both Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif were with Gen Ayub Khan and Gen Ziaul Haq, but Nawaz had severed his ties with the establishment in 1990, and now the PML-N Quaid was strictly following democratic path. He further said his party was committed to the All Pakistan Democratic Movement (APDM) and Charter of Democracy. He took a jibe at the media by saying that it telecast burial of a political leader live for many hours. Online adds: talking to a private TV channel, PML-N Spokesman Senator Pervez Rasheed expressed his partys readiness to accept the challenge by Altaf for a debate, saying that Nawaz had not targeted anyone during his speech in Muzaffarabad and only demanded the arrest of those responsible for the May 12 carnage. He said as the leader of the second major political party in the Parliament, it was a responsibility of Nawaz to visit families of May 12 bloodbath victims and press for arresting the culprits. He said the MQM leader should not resent over the PML-Ns demand and share the grief with the victims. He said his party had accepted the challenge, as we do not talk in language of bullets.
