Dr. Zulfiqar Mirza - File photo

HYDERABAD: Former home minister of Sindh Dr Zulfiqar Mirza on Tuesday once against lashed out at the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) and accused one of its formers ministers of being involved in missing Nato containers from the Karachi port.

Addressing a crowded press conference at the Hyderabad Press Club, he alleged that the MQM wanted to rule Sindh.

He charged that thousands of containers of arms and ammunition went missing in Karachi, accusing former minister for ports and shipping and senior MQM leader Babur Ghauri of being responsible for their disappearance.

He alleged that Ghauri became the biggest real estate tycoon in Karachi from being nothing at all during Musharrafs era.

Mirza announced quitting politics. He said he was retiring from politics, but some elements were hell-bent to get his basic membership of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) cancelled.

He said presently he was passing through the most crucial phase of his life. However, he said he would not leave Pakistan and also would not go into hiding.

Praising Hyderabad, he said he had had a long association with this city, adding it was always like a lap of mother for him. He said he had served the armed forces for four years but was sacked when he did not cast his vote in the referendum of Gen Zia-ul-Haq.

He vowed to fight for the rights of Sindh and urged youths of the province to strengthen his hands.
