The PPP’s diehard and ideological workers in Sadiqabad have severely criticised the PML-N leadership’s new aspect of offering the Muttahida Qaumi Movement ministries to join the Centre, saying the Pakistan Muslim League’s principled politics’ face has exposed at Nine-Zero headquarters of the MQM in Karachi.

“We are really surprised to know that the PML-N has offered ministries to the MQM. During the last 14 years, the PML-N constantly had been calling the MQM a terrorist and extortionists’ party and also taunted the MQM terming it a party which presents sack-packed bodies. But now they have embraced each other. The political parties’ politics based on selfishness has badly exploited the masses. Soon, the MQM will be part of the PML-N’s cabinet,” said the PPP leaders and workers. The workers included Abbas Taj, Khalid, Rizwan, Shahzad, Ahmad Rasheed, Bilal, Akram, Waris, Abdul Waheed, Abdul Ghafoor, Manzoor and others.

They said that the PML-N’s accusations like extortionism, terrorism and sack-pack bodies culture against the MQM have been withdrawn through the so-called policy of reconciliation.

“The delegation sent by the federal government to the MQM Headquarters in Karachi has exposed the government’s selfishness. Through the selfish politics of former prime minister Gilani, Zardari League had exposed and now with the same kind of politics of Ishaq Dar, the finance minister, the PML-N has been exposed,” they said. “The democratic frauds of capitalistic political parties are no longer a secret.”

They regretted that the political parties always came to power by instigating the masses’ sentiments and then accumulated wealth by looting the national exchequer under the capital system thereby stuffing their bank balances and making the poor poorer. They said that they would soon eliminate the capitalism by strengthening the PPP-Shaheed Bhutto through the socialist manifesto.

Earlier, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar accompanied by a delegation of the PML-N in Karachi had formally invited the MQM, the largest political party in Karachi, to join them in the PML-N-led federal coalition government. In response, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement officially announced its “unconditional support” for ruling party Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) candidate in the upcoming presidential elections.

The PML-N delegation, comprising the finance minister, presidential candidate Mamnoon Hussain, and Information Minister Pervez Rasheed, first called on Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ibad at the Governor House in Karachi.
