City Mayor Waseem Akhtar, who is also deputy convener of the Muttahida Qaumi
Movement-Pakistan’s (MQM-P) Rabita Committee, has said that his party would be compelled to review
its support to the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf-led government in the Centre if the problems of the city were
not resolved.He further said the MQM-P was not going to repeat the mistakes committed in the past as
it would no more be a part of making or breaking the government.“We joined the federal government
for the solution of problems in the city as our people are facing hardships,” he said, adding that the
party would now have to decide whether it should continue its support to the federal government or
not.While addressing a gathering of people after inspecting the road construction works in Korangi K
Area, the mayor said the provincial government kept this authority to itself to provide basic necessities
of life to people.
