KARACHI: MQM founder and leader Altaf Hussain has said a consensus opinion is emerging from the people living in urban areas of Sindh that the creation of new province was necessary for the resolutions of issues.
People say that the creation of a new province, whether it is called Karachi Province, Urban Province, Sindh One or Sindh Two, has become their destiny, he said.
Hussain said this while talking to the MQM Co-ordination Committee in London and Pakistan and members of different wings of the party at Nine Zero, a statement said.
He said, “People of urban Sindh, who have been ignored and discriminated against by successive Sindh Governments for the past 67 years, are saying that they should have a separate province.
This demand has become the heart throb of people, whether Sindhis, Balochis, permanently settled Punjabis, Pakhtuns, Hazarewals, Seraiki, Gilgiti, Baltistani, or Kashmiris, who are living in Urban Sindh.”
He asked the people to suggest good names for the new province as it is not the demand of the MQM. Hence people should suggest names for their province.
Hussain said the people of Urban Sindh have now decided that they will not hesitate from offering any sacrifice in order to get their province. - SAMAA
