Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Chairman Mustafa Kamal on Sunday rejected the census in Karachi and called upon Prime Minister Imran Khan to order a fresh census in the Sindh capital. 

Addressing a protest rally outside the Karachi Press Club on Sunday, Kamal said that people of Karachi have given their verdict against those who used to sell their fundamental rights. He said that Karachi is a city of 30 million people, but it has been deprived of its basic rights like water and education. He said the PSP acknowledged Imran Khan as prime minister of Pakistan and did not call him “selected”, but he did not do any good to Karachi

Kamal said that institutions and non-government organisations were admitting that Karachi’s census was not taken fairly. He said this controversial census should not have been legalised and approved by the federal cabinet. He said the ruling PTI and the MQM both sold the fundamental rights of people of Karachi. He said the PTI government would fall if the MQM quits the ruling coalition. He said that corrupt ministers of the MQM were sitting in the cabinet meeting, which approved the controversial census of Karachi

The PSP chief said that MQM leaders like Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui were agents of the Indian intelligence agency RAW and they could not afford to quit the government because they knew the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) would start investigation into their corruption.
