Caretaker Minister for Information and Parliamentary Affairs Murtaza Solangi has issued a rebuttal regarding the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan’s (MQM-P) claim that the minister held a meeting with former Sindh governor Dr. Ishrat Ul Ebad, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Dr. Asim, MQM-P leader Babar Ghouri, and MQM-L chief Altaf Hussain in London.
In a post shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, Solangi said, “I have neither met Dr. Ishratul Ibad nor Dr. Babar Ghauri in my life, nor have I talked to them over any medium of communication ever. The last time I saw Dr. Asim was way back in 2013. The last time I visited Dubai was in 2012. I haven’t talked to Dr. Asim, even on the phone, since then. I have never interviewed Altaf Hussain in my life. I have also not traveled to the UK after May 2023.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Ishrat Ul Ebad has also refuted any meeting with Murtaza Solangi, Dr. Asim, and Babar Ghouri with Altaf Hussain in London, as alleged by MQM-P by airing a ‘concocted’ audio yesterday in a press conference.
Dr. Ishrat said that MQM-P should refrain from irresponsible allegations or public statements and focus on governance, political harmony, and improving its leadership.
