KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) lawmakers would observe a four-day token hunger strike against government’s policies from Friday, announced Farooq Sattar during a press conference on Thursday.

“Hunger strike will be observed from 11am to 11pm outside Karachi Press Club,” he said while criticizing both the government and main opposition parties.

“Today the country is occupied by looters and thieves, we are at the mercy of terrorists, and there is a politics of collusion,” he said.

The MQM leader said the government should pass the relief of declining oil prices to the people instead of pushing them against the wall.

He said if the MQM decided to stage a sit-in, the prime minister and the president would not be able to travel abroad.
