Another MQM lawmaker jumps ship to join Kamal-led PSP
KARACHI - Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) lawmaker Nadeem Razi joined the Mustafa Kamal led Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) on Monday, levelling allegations against his former colleagues.

Razi, a member of the provincial assembly from PS-121, addressed a press conference alongside Kamal and claimed that the MQM-Pakistan faction was deceiving the public into believing their August 23 stance.

The legislator expressed that MQM-Pakistan leaders were concealing the truth and after the anti-Pakistan outburst of Altaf Hussain, members joined the Farooq Sattar-led group to serve the public but "later a contradiction emerged in what they said and what they did".

The now PSP leader affirmed that MQM belonged to Altaf Hussain while observing that MQM-Pakistan despite its claims was tied to him.

On the other hand, Kamal said that his doors were always open to the people who wanted to start a new life, leaving everything behind.

“PSP is growing rapidly and has gained a strength that is more than that of a 35-year-old political organisation,” he boasted.

The PSP supremo said the country was experiencing political turmoil and the government was toiling hard in proving state institutions wrong after Panama case verdict.
