Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain has urged the government and the protesting leaders to give up their politics of ego for the sake of the country and resolve the issues peacefully.

Speaking to PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi via phone on Monday, he said Pakistan’s integrity was confronting serious threats and personality clashes should be abandoned.

He said everyone should leave his ego and stubbornness for the country and should come forward to rescue the democratic institutions. He expressed deep condolences to the PTI leader for the loss of precious human lives and injuries.

Qureshi thanked Altaf on behalf of Imran Khan and workers for being unequivocal to support and condemn the torture on the protesters. He also thanked him for observing a day of mourning for the martyrs. He also appreciated him for his role in defusing the current political tension.
