Staff Reporter
KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has decided to sever ties with Federal Cabinet, on Monday night. According to the details, MQM’s Central Rabita Committee held its simultaneous meetings in London and Karachi. According to Rabita Committee decision, two MQM ministers will tender their resignation in first phase.
Federal Ports and Shipping Minister Babar Ghauri and deputy convener of the MQM, Dr Farooq Sattar are abroad and will tender their resignations today (Tuesday). A decision regarding quitting Sindh cabinet will be made soon. However, MQM said that it will sit on treasury benches.
It is relevant to note here that earlier MQM has given Government 10-day time-frame regarding the statements of Zulfiqar Mirza, who while addressing the traders pointed fingers at MQM over various mischievous activities.
In return, MQM met with Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani and President Asif Ali Zardari some days back where MQM delegation apprised the government high-ups regarding their reservations and it was said that both President and Prime Minister assured MQM the resolution of their grievances.
MQM leader Faisal Sabzwari while talking to the media said that MQM never wanted to derail the democratic process in the country, that’s why MQM will sit on the treasury benches, while they are quitting over government’s policies and not fulfilling MQM’s demand.
Sabzwari said that if government is serious in resolving masses issues then MQM will definitively support it, otherwise it has become very difficult for MQM to go hand-in-hand with government.
On the other hand, President Asif Ali Zardari has immediately summoned Interior Minister Rehman Malik and Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah to discuss the situation arises out of the MQM departure.
PPP leader and Minister for Labour and Manpower Syed Khursheed Shah said that government is carefully analysing the MQM decision.
