Karachi [Pakistan], Nov. 14 (ANI): Following reports that General (Retd.) Pervez Musharraf is attempting to become the joint president of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Pakistan and its offshoot Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP), graffiti in support of the former military dictator have appeared in parts of Karachi.

Spray-painted scrawls such as 'Jeay Musharraf' and 'We need Musharraf' appeared in Federal B Area and Clifton, reports the Express Tribune.

It is alleged that the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) is behind this campaign.

The posters and graffiti started appearing in the wake of Musharraf's meeting with MQM's Khawaja Izharul Hasan, Farooq Sattar and PSP's Mustafa Kamal.

Though MQM leaders and Mustafa Kamal have refuted reports of a move afoot to reunify MQM, sources privy to the development said that backdoor negotiations have started on this matter.

There are also reports that former Sindh governor Dr Ishratul Ebad has opened backdoor channels to woo MQM- Pakistan leaders to work under the leadership of Musharraf. (ANI)
