Staff Reporter
Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan leader Faisal Sabzwari has on Tuesday ruled out
any consideration to join Sindh cabinet by MQM-P. Talking in a TV channel programme, he said MQM-P
tried to work in coalition with the PPP government after 18th amendment.MQM-P can join back the
federal cabinet, if country’s situation was improved, else can decide to sit on the opposition benches as
well, Sabzwari said. Replying to a question, the MQM-P leader said party convener Khalid Maqbool
Siddiqui informed Federal Law Minister Farogh Naseem after his decision to step back from the post of
the federal minister. “Farogh Naseem was chosen as law minister by PM Khan himself.”Faisal Sabzwari
said Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Asad Umar in his meeting with the party
leaders on Monday (yesterday), had said that he want to resolve MQM-P’s reservations. A delegation
led by Asad Umar held a meeting with Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leaders at the
party’s temporary headquarters in Bahadurabad to assuage their reservations.The meeting had took
place a day after MQM-P convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui announced his resignation as federal
minister for Information Technology. Speaking at a post-meeting press conference, convener Siddiqui
had downplayed talks saying it was a scheduled meeting. He reiterated his party would continue with
its cooperation with the PTI government. Asad Umar had said Khalid Maqbool didn’t retract his decision
to quit the federal cabinet
