Altaf asks party sectors to recommend one name each for Rabita Committee.

KARACHI -- Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has directed the workers and office-bearers of the party to recommend one name from their respective sectors for the Rabita Committee.

Recommendations should be made purely on merit and the person recommended by sectors should be educated and honest having the ability to read, write and speak in Urdu and English languages. In a statement issued by MQM here on Friday, Altaf Hussain warned the sectors and units against forwarding any name on the basis of nepotism and friendships.

He said workers lobbying for anyone should not attend the General Workers meeting of the MQM on Sunday. He said that he had given numerous lectures on human weaknesses and warned that the workers would lose him if they did not improve. Altaf Hussain directed the workers and office-bearers not to maintain any contact with the workers who have been suspended or expelled from the party.

He asked them to desist from engaging in any altercation with the suspended or expelled workers. He warned that the party membership of the workers violating these instructions would be revoked. Addressing the provisional Rabita Committee and the dissolved Rabita Committee, Altaf Hussain said that if anyone is assigned any responsibility at any place, they should follow the directions and discharge their responsibilities whether they like it or not. Otherwise they would have the option to resign from the party.

He said that the office-bearers of the MQM should consider the requests of the dissolved Rabita Committee for returning to the party if they brought improvement in themselves. Altaf Hussain made it clear one again that there was no room for anyone in the MQM dealing directly or indirectly in plots, houses, and lands.

Talking to members of the provisional Rabita Committee Gulfaraz Khan Khattak, Yusuf Shahwani, Iftakhar Randhawa and Muhammad Ashfaq Mangi, who are representing the four provinces, he said that they should not be filled with pride at not being removed from the Rabita Committee.

He asked them to work with humility and work with extra dedication in the current difficult times. He said that it would be better for them to sit in their homes if they are not able to discharge their responsibilities amicably. Altaf Hussain said that if the members of the erstwhile Rabita Committee who had worked with him for 30 to 35 years had been wakeful, the MQM would not have been passing through the current painful situation. He said it would be better to stop the movement altogether instead of allowing a handful of people to revel in pleasure at the expense of thousands of martyred workers. Altaf Hussain said that he had seen difficult time and endured years of sufferings and privations.

He said that he had also seen good times but it did not bring any change in his bearing. He said that politics for him was a means of serving the humanity. It was aimed at spreading peace, love, and putting the country on the path of progress and prosperity by eliminating corruption and the feudal system. Altaf Hussain said that death is an unchangeable reality and everyone has to die one day.
