KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain said "MQM is ready to work with government shoulder to shoulder for defending the country."

“The establishment should accept that the MQM is a patriotic political party and end its unwarranted acrimony. .” He invited JI, PTI and all other political forces to forgo disputes and work together for the country as we were all equal citizens of the country. He expressed these views while addressing a huge gathering of people in Jinnah Ground Azizabad, who were celebrating the magnificent victory of the MQM in the by-election to NA-246.

Referring to various newspaper reports about the conduct of by-election Altaf said, “It has been published in most of the newspapers as to how the Rangers personnel interfered in the election process and overstepped their authority.

The Rangers were given the power to punish others, but no one can take action against Rangers for their wrongdoing.” Altaf said that the PTI had initially supported the demand for extending the polling time but at the suggestion of the umpire opposed it later on. “The JI was facing difficulties from the very beginning and hence they strongly opposed any extension in the polling time.”
