ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday appealed to Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Altaf Hussain to take back his party’s decision to observe a day of mourning in Karachi on Saturday (today).
Minutes after MQM leader Haider Abba Rizvi’s press conference, in which he announced a day of mourning in Karachi on Saturday, Bilawal said that the decision was a larger conspiracy against Altaf Hussain. In his message on social media website Twitter, Bilawal said, “Lots of sympathy for MQMs legitimate concerns. But they will loss all good wills if they take Karachi hostage again with strike politics.” Bilawal asked Altaf Hussain to tell his party workers that threatening the people of Karachi, traders and transporters live on television is not the philosophy of the MQM chief.
“I appeal 2 (to) UncleAltaf 2 (to) call of strike. Pls (please) tell MQM ppl (people) tht (that) threatening ppl (people) of KHI (Karachi), traders & transporters on live TV is not ur (your) phil (philosophy) of love.” Bilawal went on to say, “I’ve warned about anti-Altaf forces within MQM.I fear this strike is part of a larger conspiracy vs. uncle Altaf. I hope he doesnt fall 4 (for) it.”
