KARACHI -  The recent wave of desertions from the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) to the Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) continues with NA-242 lawmaker Mehboob Alam joining Kamal's party.

He along with two other members announced his addition in PSP at a press conference at Pakistan House Karachi.

The PSP chief said within a few days 4 MNA's and 4 MPA's have announced their inclusion in his party.

"We never abused anyone and we were sure that many people will join us as we have continued our struggle for better Pakistan," he added.

Earlier, on April 4, MQM-P MNA Muhammad Muzammil Qureshi joined PSP.

Qureshi, who belonged to the Farooq Sattar-led faction of MQM-P, while speaking about his decision said that he joined PSP as there is no scandal or pressure within the party. “We need to sit together to solve problems of the Urdu-speaking community,” he added.

Qureshi cautioned media from using terms such as ‘kites being cut’ and ‘wickets falling’ to refer to people leaving MQM-P.

“We are not kites or wickets. We are people who have made the decision on our own accord. We want to work for the betterment of the people,” he added while speaking at a press conference on Wednesday.
