MQM delegation was led by Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui while Aamir Khan, Kanwar Naveed Jameel, Faisal Subzwari, Aminul Haq, Nasreen Jalil and Muhammad Hussain were also present.

MQM placed four important demands in front of the government delegation, the demands include setting up of a university in Hyderabad, development budget for Hyderabad, implementation of a package of Rs162 billion for Karachi and opening of MQM s closed offices.

During the meeting, PTI senior leader Jahangir Tareen invited MQM Pakistan to join the cabinet again and said that MQM’s issues are important but not all things can be resolved at once.

MQM Pakistan convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said that their problems are more important than joining the cabinet.

Speaking to media after the meeting between the PTI-MQM-P delegations concluded, Siddiqui said his party had highlighted the problems facing Sindh’s urban areas and Karachi and how the eighteenth amendment had wreaked havoc, “something that promised devolution of power has been used as a tool for accumulation of power.”

He also said that Sindh’s urban areas “are in the Intensive Care Unit” and those areas of the country should be taken care of by the government whose shopkeepers, traders and industrialists were “fulfilling their responsibilities” and generating revenue.

“The PTI knew about these problems before we joined hands to form the federal government,” he said, saying that the MQM-P had given the ruling party “unconditional support” during its time of need.

Earlier, a government delegation led by Jahangir Tareen met Governor Sindh Imran Ismail in which different issues were discussed in detail.

On the occasion, Governor Sindh Imran Ismail said that resources will be used to improve the quality of life of the people and lauded federal government’s support for the development of the province.
