Earlier in December, a delegation of MQM-Pakistan (MQM-P), the coalition partners of the ruling PML-N, met Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and conveyed reservations over the non-implementation of the agreement signed with the PPP. During the meeting with PM Shehbaz Sharif, the delegation expressed their concerns over the non-implementation of the agreement signed with the PPP and the federal government.

Sources told that the delegation also protested against the PPP and complained that it wasn’t keeping its promises. “If the Sindh and federal governments are not fulfilling their promises, then we will take our own decision,” sources said quoting the delegation.
