LAHORE MQM has given a final warning to the PPP that it will part ways with the coalition governments in the Centre as well as in Sindh if the PPP does not stop its muscle-flexing for getting control of City District Governments of Karachi and Hyderabad. Insiders in MQM while talking to this scribe on Wednesday informed that gun-battles in the provincial metropolis of Sindh that killed several innocent people in the last few days was aimed at getting control of City District Governments of Karachi and Hyderabad. Giving details of MQM Coordination Committee meeting held on February 2 at London and Karachi, they disclosed that MQM has conveyed final warning to the PPP high command as a result of decisions taken at the partys Coordination Committee meeting. The Committee members while taking up the issue of warnings of the top PPP leadership to Sindh Ministers Dr Zulfikar Mirza and Agha Siraj Durrani reached the conclusion that mere warnings would not lower the tensions between the two parties and sacking of the said ministers was a must for confidence building measures between the MQM and PPP. However, MQM would wait for sometime regarding the sacking of Dr Zulfikar Mirza and Agha Siraj Durrani and the party would evolve its strategy in this regard if the PPP fails to address their demand regarding sacking of the two hawkish Ministers, divulged the insiders. Several members of the Coordination Committee strongly protested over the MQM high commands policy of compromise and demanded that party instead of giving warnings should take some solid measures to pacify the sentiments of the party workers. The Committee members were of the view that PPP would lack simple majority at the Centre if the MQM with its 24 seats in National Assembly would part ways from the coalition. Similarly, PPP will have to face serious difficulties in Sindh if the MQM abandon them, the insiders added. MQM Coordination Committee decided that it would not let the PPP postpone the upcoming Local Bodies polls at any cost under the garb of unrest and resist any such move. Also, the MQM will not accept PPP proposal of implementing the Local Bodies system of 1979 that deprives the local representatives of their powers and empowers the civil bureaucracy to control the Local Governments. It is to be mentioned here that MQM wanted the existing Local Bodies law but it agreed at making some amendments in the law.
