KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain has congratulated the party workers over the win in the recent by election in NA-246 Constituency as well as the local bodies’ polls in cantonment board, saying MQM emerged triumphant in spite of a stream of allegations against it.

Addressing the party workers in Jinnah Ground, Altaf Hussain told the party’s Rabitta Committee: “We don’t need workers for a show off; we need workers who can perform.”

He warned that any worker or office-bearer whose performance failed to meet the criteria will have to resign.

The MQM Chief directed to kick start on immediate basis the process of membership across the country and asked the party’s MPAs to get vociferous in assemblies for resolving the public issues.

He demanded of the authorities to nab the murderers of Sabeen Mahmud, the director of The Second Floor (T2F), who was assassinated by unknown gunmen on Friday. “The secret hand involved in her assassination be unmasked,” he added.
