Muttahida Qaumi Movement Announces Jalsa at Multan on December, 2011. According to private Pakistani media, MQM has planned Jalsa in Multan. It looks Pakistani political parties are trying to show their strength through massive public gatherings. Jalsa politics trend is not new for Pakistan but many political critics assume that it was re-started by Tehreek e Insaf via Lahore Jalsa.
In last few weeks, Muslim League-Nawaz did two consecutive Jalsa’s in Lahore and Faisalabad. APML also tried to gather public in Hyderabad but it was eradicated by police forces. Now MQM also jumps in Jalsa politics?
No doubt, MQM is getting popularity in some areas of Punjab, especially south Punjab but this is too early to say that how much this Multan Jalsa will help MQM in Next General Elections.
