Masses ruled out allegations by voting for MQM: Altaf

KARACHI: Congratulating his supporters over Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) candidate Kanwar Naveed Jameel’s victory in the NA-246 by-poll, party chief Altaf Hussain in the early hours of Friday said the masses have dismissed all allegations hurled at his party in the recent past.

Speaking to a large numbers of supporters gathered at Jinnah Ground to celebrate the party’s triumph, he said that the masses have also rejected the ongoing ‘media trial’ of the MQM.
“Altaf Hussian’s bond with the people cannot be broken with media trial,” he added.

According to unofficial and unconfirmed results, Kanwar Naveed bagged 93125 votes while his closest rival Imran Ismail of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) managed to secure 16932 votes in Thursday’s by-election.

Rashid Naseem of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) came third with less than 10,000 votes.
The elated MQM chief said that his opponents used all tactics to demean his party, but the God has saved their respect and granted them a great victory. He thanked the almighty for the landslide victory over rivals.
