Apologising to the voters for not delivering in the local government, he said that “I apologise to the people who believed in us and thought we would deliver while being at the helm of city’s affairs”.
“I think we could have delivered with whatever resources we had but we did not. This is the main reason I left MQM-P,” he explained.
PSP President Anis Qaim Khani also spoke to media, where he said that Deputy Mayor Vohra is joining the party, adding that the PSP has supporters in thousands of numbers.
The MQM fell from grace following the August 22 violence, instigated by the party founder’s speech. The party split into two groups last year and several leaders from the Pakistan chapter joined the PSP — the party led by another disgruntled former MQM member.
Kamal, the former Karachi mayor from the MQM, formed PSP in March 2016 alongside Qaimkhani.
