PM must step down to ‘save’ country: MQM

KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Saturday urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down from his high office if there was any imminent danger to the lives or property of the people during the upcoming long march and protests. In a statement issued on Saturday, the MQM chief urged Nawaz to take the first step and address the genuine complaints of the opposition groups through dialogue. He said if there was any danger during the upcoming long march or protests, the premier should bravely step down and hand over the reins to someone else from within his party after due consultations with party members. “The other option would be to find a constitutional solution to the crisis.” Altaf urged the masses as well as political and religious leaders to sort out differences through a meaningful dialogue. He urged the aggrieved parties, who intended to carry out long marches and protest demonstrations on August 12 and 14, to refrain from aggressive actions and confrontations. Instead, he asked them to seek a solution through dialogue and discussions.
