Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) chief Syed Mustafa Kamal said on Friday that the Muttahida
Quami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) won't quit the federal government, a few days after MQM-P
convener Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui tendered his resignation from the federal ministry in protest.
Speaking to media persons, the PSP chief predicted that the MQM-P's reservations with the government

will not last long as it was all a "drama". "These people [MQM-P] are all actors, and this drama with the
people of Karachi must end," he said. Kamal said corruption cases against the MQM-P will be used to
draw them back into the government and the party knew this as well. "The corruption of the party is
tied to their stint in power. Files against these people have already been prepared and as soon as they
leave the government, they will be arrested," he said. Kamal claimed that Mutahida Qaumi Movement-
Pakistan (MQM-P) Convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui is being replaced by Aminul Haque as the party is
divided into groups. He dismissed Siddiqui's complaints against the government, saying that there was
an internal fight within the party. He said Amir Khan, the deputy convener of the party, was involved in a
"power tussle" with Siddiqui. The former Karachi mayor was amused as to how Siddiqui, the convener of
the party, couldn't persuade another MQM-P member, Farogh Naseem, to quit the cabinet.
