Lahore (PR): The Labour Party Pakistan (LPP) strongly condemns the thug violence employed by the MQM, in collaboration with the government, thus costing scores of precious lives in Karachi on May 12.
 
In a press release issued here, LPP Secretary General Farooq Tariq while holding Musharraf regime, Sindh government and MQM responsible for the killings in Karachi, has paid tributes to the political activists who laid their lives for the cause of democracy as well as independence of judiciary and valiantly faced the bullets.

He also announced to observe the Black day on the call of ARD and appealed to the workers, trade unions and masses to observe a general strike on Monday.  
He said: ' The government and it's political pet MQM have been hand in glove in perpetuating violence in order to derail the democracy movement further triggered by the dismissal of Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry'.  
He demanded an immediate resignation of general Musharraf, Sindh governor and chief minister.  

He said hundreds of thousands of pro-democracy workers received Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry on GT Road, dozens of rallies have been held by advocates and activists all across the country since March 9 and nowhere even a stone was cast. 'The blood is on the hands of federal as well as Sindh government and MQM leadership. A judicial inquiry should be conducted to probe the killings and culprits be brought to justice', he demanded.  
 
Paying tributes to the democracy martyrs, he said movements grow when watered by the blood of martyrs. He vowed to continue the democracy struggle on the platform of his party in collaboration with other democratic and progressive forces. (ends)
