MQM leader sees no early rapprochement with PPP

Karachi
The conflict between the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) cannot be resolved on the directives of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
This was stated by Muttahida leader and former MNA Waseem Akhtar while talking to The News when asked about mending of differences between the two main Sindh parties.
Sharif in his last visit to Karachi had advised both the PPP and MQM to hold talks and resolve their issues.
Waseem said even the very first step of forming a ‘proper’ judicial commission according to the Muttahida demand has not been taken yet.
He stressed: “We don’t have any kind of trust in the government and have rejected the judicial commission announced by it.”
The MQM leader regretted that Karachi has become a garbage den as funds
worth billions of rupees allocated for the city have been put on hold, adding that the KMC employees were without salaries since last three months.
Wasim said the missing Muttahida workers’ issue was also lingering on and their non-recovery has made the matter worse.
Adding on to the grievance list, he said that jobs were only being given to people associated with one party “as the government does not believe in merit.”
Sindh Minister for Local Bodies and Information Sharjeel Inam Memon was not available for comments despite repeated efforts made to contact him.
