Talks on with former coalition partners: Speaker Durrani

February 24, 2014

SUKKUR: Talks with the MQM, PML-F and PML-N are going on to make them coalition partners in the Sindh government.
Speaker Sindh Assembly, Agha Siraj Durrani said this while talking to news reporters in Larkana on Sunday. He said these parties were coalition partners in the previous Sindh government but when the PPPP formed the government this time, they isolated themselves. But they are welcome if they want to join again because Asif Zardari is determined to carry on the policy of political reconciliation, which was the desire of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto.
Referring to negotiations with Taliban, Agha Siraj said the talks would not be fruitful at this stage because they are exploiting the government.
Meanwhile, Sindh Minister for Jails, Manzoor Husain Wassan said the PML-F is now at a stage that it is requesting Asif Ali Zardari to take them as a coalition partner in the Sindh government. The minister predicted that the MQM will rejoin the Sindh government, probably much before the PML-F.Wassan said the operation in Karachi is giving good results and will continue until complete restoration of peace.
