MQM senator backs idea for creating new provincesSeptember 15, 2014
KARACHI: Muttahida Qaum Movement (MQM) Senator Tahir Mashhadi said on Tuesday that the idea of Muttahida chief Altaf Hussain for creating new provinces on administrative basis reflects the sentiments of the poor and oppressed people of Pakistan.
In a statement the senator said, “The oppressed people, who comprise 98 per cent of the population of the country, are gradually getting into the quagmire of socio-economic problems. The government is not doing enough for the resolution of problems being faced by public.”
“Altaf Hussain is the only leader who has always taken initiative to give voice to the feelings of the poor and oppressed people of the country. He has always bravely tried to take public issues to elected representatives sitting in the assemblies. That’s why he has proposed the formation of new provinces keeping in view of the problems being faced by people.”
The senator said that Hussain’s demand was important and timely. He urged the government to pay attention to problems faced by people in every part of the country. He said that the country could be pulled out of the whirlpool of problems by implementing the democracy according to its true spirit and solving public issues at their doorstep.
