Jumhooree Party (JP)’s Founder Qasim Ibrahim said he had never proclaimed that the coalition parties’ unity will be jeopardized due to former President Mohamed Nasheed.
Qasim tweeted this in response to a local media outlet which alleged Qasim of stating that the joint coalition’s unity would be severed because of Nasheed.
Qasim said neither he nor JP have made any such statements and stated that a group of people are fabricating and spreading obvious lies about him. Such statements are spread to destroy the unity of the parties as they are working as a team, Qasim said condemning the act.
In another tweet Qasim strongly criticized President Abdulla Yameen stating that the latter is oppressing and imprisoning everyone who he perceives might run for presidency, numerous MPs working for the rights of the people, and judges who acted according to the constitution and issued just verdicts.
Although Qasim is receiving criticism from some people, many political figures try to garner his trust and support during each election.
