He remarked this while addressing a press conference, also adding that he stood by his accusations levelled against the MQM and the party went into alliance with the latter because the PTI had not enough party votes to elect Imran Khan as leader of the house in the national assembly.

“MQM lost because of Mayor Waseem Akhtar,” Naqvi said. “They (MQM) didn’t fulfil promises made to the nation.”

He also ensured that PTI will only go into alliance with those having no criminal background.
