Islamabad, Apr 11 (ANI): Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain has said that no one can prevent his party from creating a stronghold in Punjab.

While addressing a public meeting of the MQM titled ‘Istehkam-e-Pakistan Jalsa’, the Daily Times quoted Hussain as urging global powers to look at the strength of his public meeting in Punjab and see that the people of Pakistan supported him.

As many as 10,000 people from across the country attended the meeting, which was organised by the MQM to display its strength in Punjab after a struggle spanning over almost five years.

Altaf assured the inhabitants of Punjab that if his party came to power, it would change the political, social and economic culture of the country.

He also announced that his party would bring a revolution of young, educated people in the country and amend the constitution in favour of the labour class, women and minorities who are deprived of their basic rights.

“We will provide equal rights to women and minorities vis a vis other citizens of the country,” he said.

“After coming to power, my government will constitute an independent accountability commission to eliminate corruption from the society,” he added.

The MQM Chief also stressed that his party would solve the issue of Kashmir based on their wishes if it succeeds in forming a government there. (ANI)
