KARACHI: Senior leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement Farooq Sattar has said powers of mayor must be devolved to him. Chief minister of Sindh after census of 2018 would be from Karachi and if census failed to take place then Karachi would have its own chief minister.
He also blamed the CM Sindh for being biased and said: “We know how to use thorns as buttons. We would show and teach how to work without having powers,” he said while addressing party oath ceremony of mayor and deputy mayor of Karachi.
MQM-nominated mayor Karachi Waseem Akhter said he would continue working for Karachi with honesty. Nominated deputy mayor Karachi Arshad Vohra said issues could not be resolved overnight. People should help us in resolving issues.
