MQM-P Complains To PM About Being ‘Neglected’ On Vital Issues
A delegation of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) led by the party's convener, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, visited Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday and voiced concerns about not being consulted about important national issues.

As per sources, the meeting was a part of the consultative process for the formation of a caretaker setup in the country after the dissolution of assemblies next month.

The meeting was attended by Federal Minister for Information Technology Aminul Haq, Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori, Dr. Farooq Sattar, and Mustafa Kamal, Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique, and Minister for Economic Affairs Sardar Ayaz Sadiq.

The delegation informed PM Shehbaz that they had not been consulted on the essential issue of dissolving the assembly and that just two prominent coalition members were handling the planning.

According to a statement from the PM Media Wing, the two parties conducted discussions about the caretaker setup and the recently completed census.

The MQM-P delegation also complimented the prime minister for personally overseeing ongoing development projects and encouraged him to guarantee their prompt conclusion, according to the official statement.

The MQM-P leaders also commended the prime minister's and his economic team's work in achieving the stand-by deal with the IMF.

According to sources, the MQM-P delegation asked that the census results be announced and that the results of the 2018 census, not the 2017 one, should be used to determine the basis for the next general election.
