KARACHI: Former mayor of Karachi, Mustafa Kamal in a dramatic return to the city revealed for the first time his reasons behind his controversial exit from the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and criticised the party’s chief Altaf Hussain for “deception” and what he called his poor running of one of Karachi’s strongest political parties.In a speech that lasted nearly two hours, he also announced the formation of a new political party, which he said is yet to be named. He raised a Pakistani flag and said it is the official emblem of his newly launched organisation.

“Today we are laying the foundation of an organisation, you may call it a party. We are just two individuals, myself and Anees Qaimkhani.”

Midway during the speech, Kamal broke down into tears while addressing the press conference, as he went on to make major revelations about the internal workings of the party and what he called the cult of personality made around Altaf Hussain.

“Every time the MQM joined the government, its position deteriorated,” Kamal stated.

“But Altaf sahab and the MQM instead of apologising, began verbally attacking PTI women activists at Teen Talwar,” he said, adding that despite poor governance, the MQM was able to bag two more seats between 2008 and 2013.

“I thought the PTI stealing almost a million votes from MQM’s strongholds will make the party rethink its ways,” added Kamal, shaking his head.

Referring to the MQM supremo as “Altaf sahib” as compared to his earlier reverential use of “Altaf Bhai”, he said Hussain was often intoxicated while addressing workers, and that his state worsened over time.

‘Altaf was intoxicated’
“Altaf gathered his workers and was intoxicated, when he addressed his supporters at 90 after the PTI achieved success during the 2013 elections,” said Kamal.

Kamal said despite repeated requests, Altaf Hussain did not pay heed to the advice given by party leaders.

Kamal added that Altaf was intoxicated when addressing the entire Rabita Committee. He went on to state that people have sacrificed their lives and generations for Altaf Hussain, while “we [Rabita Committee members] used to take responsibility for all his mistakes and actions.”

‘We tried our best to save Altaf’
“We tried our best to keep Altaf Hussain from being exposed. Initially, he used to be out of his senses at night due to excessive drinking. But now he stays intoxicated for days and weeks,” stated Kamal while shedding light on current state of party affairs.

“We staged a protest outside the Sindh election commission after elections just to cool down Altaf’s temper.”
