Sindh’s politicians have fired back at the MQM after Saturday’s rally where it bashed the PPP and PSP and called for the formation of a new province in Sindh.
The Sindh chief minister’s adviser on law and information, Murtaza Wahab, commented on the rally’s attendance and said more people come to watch cows be slaughtered on Eid. He said the MQM has now become the ‘Muhalla [neighbourhood]’ Qaumi Movement.
He also took to Twitter to share pictures showing empty seats at the rally.

Local Government Minister Saeed Ghani also fired back and called the rally a failure. He said the people of Karachi have rejected the MQM.
During the rally, MQM leaders lashed out at the PPP and said they have destroyed urban Sindh in the name of provincial autonomy. “We will not tolerate it,” the party’s senior deputy convener Amir Khan said. “We will not accept Larkana’s slavery.”
They also targeted PSP Chairperson Mustafa Kamal, a former MQM loyalist, and told him to go back to Dubai. He also responded to their comments and asked how people who don’t have the authority to lay gutter lines will form a separate province.
