Back Again!

Southasia - - BRIEFINGS -

After­months of ru­mors and spec­u­la­tions, the Mut­tahida Qaumi Move­ment fi­nally joined the PPP-led govern­ment in Sindh. The party re­ceived two min­istries, two slots of ad­vi­sors and one for a spe­cial as­sis­tant. Rauf Sid­diqui and Dr. Saghir Ahmed took oath as min­is­ter of in­dus­tries & com­merce and health, re­spec­tively. Faisal Sabzwari and Adil Sid­diqui have been in­ducted as ad­vi­sors to the Chief Min­is­ter Sindh while Ab­dul Haseeb has been ap­pointed as spe­cial as­sis­tant to the CM.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, sev­eral lead­ers and party ac­tivists of the MQM were against the de­ci­sion of join­ing the govern­ment. Last June, the party held a ref­er­en­dum and asked its work­ers whether or not the MQM should join the govern­ment. The re­sult of the ref­er­en­dum was not made pub­lic.
