The perception of MQM on Punjab and especially on Punabi voters is that "MQM is a muhajir support party and does not understand the problems of Punjab". The establishment and leaders of Punjab worked hard to build this perception of MQM upon Punjabi Voters, because they know that soon or later this important political institution would come in their areas. Why I said these words? Its not so much old matter, in the ending period of General Pervaiz Musharraf's regime all political parties unitedly gathered in London and passed a resolution against Musharraf, Imran Khan chairman Tehrik e Insaf said that the political party who in any ways support or keep affiliation with MQM will be excluded from this APC platform and Imran urged to make this point form part of the resolution.
If we look behind on Pakistan's former governemts we can see that PPP made its share 2 times in the governemt belongs to Sindh and the other one PMLN also made government 2 times belongs to Punjab so if MQM from Sindh wants to go Punjab and trying to form government from there then whats wrong in it. Everything has a start and MQM took its start from muhajir platform and going advanced now.
Not only Pakistan but all the world has seen the performance of MQM in local governemts from 2004 to 2009. Bridges, flyovers, underpass, parks, playgrounds, solution of sewerage, water and roads, no one could deny the facts, truth is speaking itself, even its more or less 1 year that MQM separated from CDGK but you can see flyovers, underpass and roads are still in its good condition which is a proof of a successful leadership.
Yesterday MQM inaugurated its new office in Punjab at Killer Saida and its a sign that MQM is concentrating its political activities in Punjab, will MQM become successful in achieving its targest in Punjab or not? Whats your opinion.
