KARACHI: An independent candidate Mehfooz Yar Khan announced to withdraw the contest in NA-246 by-election besides his inclusion in Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).
Earlier, Mehfooz Yar Khan was affiliated with Awami Muslim League but faced various defeats in the electoral contests and later decided to join MQM by withdrawing his nomination papers.
Khan expressed hopes that Kanwar Naveed Jameel would meet expectations of the masses while MQM’s assistance needed to establish educational institutions in the constituency. Khan said that he decided to join MQM after speech of Altaf Hussain.
He criticised Imran Khan that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) collected persons across the city to organise rally in NA-246 while Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) spread terrorism under supervision of Taliban insurgents but MQM would not let distribute mandate of Muhajir nation.
