Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Aminul Haq on Thursday said that the party was still holding consultations with Pakistan People’s Party, as the opposition appealed to the government’s allies for support in ousting Prime Minister Imran Khan in the upcoming no-confidence motion.
Posting a picture of the meeting on its official Twitter account, the PPP revealed that MQM’s leaders Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Aamir Khan, Aminul Haq, Wasim Akhtar, and Javed Hanif were present in the meeting. Whereas, PPP’s Asif Ali-Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Murad Ali Shah represented their party.
The development comes a day after MQM-P called on the ruling party to make changes in the Prime Minister’s Office to bring an end to the ongoing political crisis in the country.
“PM Imran Khan should nominate another leader from the PTI in his place so that the coalition parties can take a positive decision,” the MQM-P told a delegation of the ruling party during a meeting at the Parliament Lodges.
According to a local newspaper, PTI’s leaders met with the MQM-P lawmakers yesterday night. The report said that the government’s team assured MQM-P that all their reservations and problems would be dealt with.
The government’s delegation further called on the MQM-P to not abandon it in their time of need. On the other hand, MQM-P leaders criticized that they had been with the government for three and a half years, but the promises made to them were yet to be fulfilled.
