KARACHI: The Mutumiida Qaumi-Pakistan Movement (MQM-P) said on Friday that the Center promised them funds for urban areas in Sindh Province and that any future decisions would be made after receiving them, ARY NEWS reported.
Sources within the party revealed this after a meeting between the MQM-P and the federal government delegations.
They said that currently, the most important problem for them is the resolution of the problems facing the urban areas of the province rather than their return to the federal cabinet.
“The government delegation assures us that they will receive the funds soon and any future course of action will be devised after this process,” they said and added that their meeting was held in a good environment and that they expect progress in their demands.
We are not currently withdrawing our resignation from the federal cabinet or joining it, MQM-P sources said.
On January 12, the coordinator of the Muttahida Qaumi-Pakistan Movement (MQM-P) Dr. Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui announced that he will resign as Federal Minister of Information Technology.
Speaking at a press conference, he said that being a member of the cabinet of Prime Minister Imran Khan was useless, since no progress has been made in eliminating his reservations about the problems facing the port city.
Siddiqui, however, said his party would not withdraw support for the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
“We are not withdrawing our support,” he said, adding that his possession of the federal minister’s portfolio raised many questions. He said his party intends to keep the promise he made to the PTI.
