MQM, PPP negotiations stalled after 'barbs'
KARACHI: The negotiation process between the Mutahidda Qaumi Movement and the Pakistan People's Party have hit snags following confronting statements of party leaders from the PPP, ARY News reported Friday.
According to sources, MQM is now mulling to determine public opinion whether it should join the Sindh government.
Former president and PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari, Governor Sindh Dr. Ishratul Ibad, Rehman Malik and Syed Owais Muzaffar played vital role during the negotiation process. MQM sources told that the PPP invited MQM thrice in last 10 days to join the Sindh government, but confronting statements from some PPP leaders have stalled the talk process.
Sources told that MQM had refrained from counter bashing on the directives of party head Altaf Hussain. They said statements from the PPP side showed they were under-pressure from within the party.
PPP leader Rehman Malik has again reached Karachi to clear the air between both the parties.
