MQM delegation meets government team, raised the issue of Karachi package

Posted on Feb 7, 2020

The MQM again raised the issue of Karachi package in the meeting of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Pakistan delegation from the government negotiating team.

The MQM delegation and the government team met in the Ministry of Planning, which included Minister for Planning, Asad Omar, Governor Sindh Imran Ismail, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister, Shahzad Akbar, MQM Convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and Faisal Sabzwari. ۔

Talking to the media after the meeting, Federal Minister Asad Omar said that there was talk of MQM and meetings were also taking place. There is a conflict between justice.

He said that both the MQM and PTI parties have got a mandate in Karachi, but in the economy of Pakistan, Karachi does not get the rights that it has in terms of population.

Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said that he had come to the meeting not to negotiate but to ask the answers to the questions.

He said that Karachi meets 65% of the country's budget but it is given a very low budget, we want to increase it and want to release the Karachi package and give control to Karachi Municipal Corporation (KMC).

On the occasion, Governor Sindh Imran Ismail replied to a question that there was no confusion which would be resolved while the MQM had a good atmosphere.

Referring to the MQM getting an additional ministry in the federation, both Asad Omar and Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said that the matter had never been discussed.

It should be remembered that last week, Prime Minister Imran Khan had formed various committees to connect with the coalition parties.

Asad Omar was appointed the convenor of the committee formed to connect with the MQM and the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA), while other members include Governor Sindh Imran Ismail, Firdous Shamim Naqvi and Halim Adil Sheikh.

It should be noted that the ruling party PTI is facing difficulties and almost all its allies are complaining about the failure of their promises.

All the allies are important to the PTI to maintain the government in the federal government as it has a slight edge in the National Assembly.

This problem found in the ranks of the government came to light when two ministers belonging to MQM Pakistan and PML-Q did not attend the federal cabinet meeting earlier this month. ۔

After this, PTI leaders held meetings with Muslim League (Q) and BNP leaders in Islamabad and three separate MQM leaders in Karachi.
