KARACHI: The central leader of the Pakistan People’s Party from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Nawabzada Khawaja Muhammad Khan Hoti, said the Karachi Pashtuns should not let their vote bank fall into the hands of ethnic and religious parties and collectively support the PPP to solve their problems.
In a recent conversation with The News during his visit to Karachi, Hoti, who is also a former PPP provincial president and federal minister, said the PPP is the only party that can be described as a symbol of the federation and is supported by all members. country by all ethnicities.
“The PPP Sindh leadership must also devise a strategy to consolidate its position in the Karachi Pashtun, the second largest ethnic community in the city, by inducting several Pashtun leaders into key advisory positions and the party,” he said.
During his visit, Hoti also met with several PPP leaders to discuss the politics of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Karachi. “I advise them [the PPP leaders] to include Pashtun leaders with good reputations in society in party organizational structures and government positions in the city. ” he says.
“The Karachi Pashtun community greatly influenced the electoral trend in KP and vice versa,” said the veteran politician.
He believes that greater influence from the city’s Pashtun area can help the PPP regain its strength in KP. “In Karachi, an influential media presence, an emerging Pashtun middle class, and dynamic trade relations are important in KP politics.”
Hoti visits several Pashtun neighborhoods, meets community elders, and listens to issues related to communities who live permanently in Karachi.
“The Pashtun community and their area suffered greatly during the reign of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement,” he said.
“During the meeting, I told the community elders that the Pashtuns living in Karachi have isolated themselves from the mainstream by supporting religious and ethnic parties and thus dividing their power and vote bank.
“PPP is the only platform where they can play a collective role in urban politics and progress,” he stressed.
“They [Pashtuns] are now permanent residents of Sindh and therefore they have to participate in local politics under the banner of PPP, “he said.
He noted that it was the PPP that had changed the name of the province from NWFP to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and fulfilled decades of demand for Pashtuns.
Economy sinking: Hoti says Pakistan’s incompetent ruler Tehreek-e-Insaf has drowned the country’s economy because of their misunderstood policies.
“In KP, the PTI government has failed to give much. The residents of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa must be disappointed with the performance of PTI and its coalition partners and that is why they are seeing PPP again. “
Hoti said that under the young and dynamic leadership of the party supremo, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, PPP had revived in KP, and the participation of a large number of PPP supporters in the Pakistan Democratic Movement rallies was an example.
