April 5, 2017


Party says PPP govt involved in nepotism and corruption,

denying urban population govt jobs

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan said on Tuesday that it would issue a ‘white paper’ on Wednesday (today) to expose the discriminatory treatment and injustice meted out to the people of Sindh, particularly to its urban residents, by the Pakistan People’s Party’s provincial government.

Amin-ul-Haq, the MQM-P’s information in-charge, said the white paper would be issued at a press conference at the Karachi Press Club.

Key members of the MQM-P’s coordination committee, the party’s MNAs and MPAs, and the Karachi mayor will be present at the press conference.

Haq said Amir Khan, Faisal Subzwari or leader of the opposition in the PA Khawaja Izhar-ul-Hasan, one of them was likely to address the press conference.

The MQM-P has accused the PPP government of nepotism, corruption and discriminating against the urban population of the province by denying it government jobs and not transferring powers to the local government representatives.

Haq said the PPP government had performed poorly and was involved in mega corruption scandals

In the white paper, the MQM has also accused the PPP of creating unrest in Karachi by trying to trigger riots. Haq the provincial government was transferring funds to its “favourites”.

“In the white paper, we will raise the issue of the distribution of funds to the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation, the district municipal corporations and other local government institutions,” he added.

“The PPP government has ignored Karachi for the past eight years. The MQM has the right to ask the government about the Rs12 billion development package issued Karachi, where has that money been spent.”
