KARACHI: (APP) Karachi's Mayor-elect, Wasim Akhtar Wednesday said that though elected from the platform of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) he is Mayor of entire city and will thus take everyone along and serve people without any distinction.

He was talking to media persons after the announcement of the unofficial results.

Wasim was of the view that with concerted efforts by all, the civic problems would be resolved.

He said that whatever happened in the past should be left behind and we should move ahead.

The Mayor-elect stated that all the political parties would be taken along.
