Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Aamir Khan on Monday said that his party would be given the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis.

In an informal conversation with journalists outside the Sindh High Court on Monday, Amir Khan said that the MQM-P would name Syed Aminul Haque as its candidate for overseas Pakistanis minister.

“We had a detailed discussion with Prime Minister Imran Khan during his visit to Karachi on Sunday and Khan said ‘we don’t know who has been given false assurances.’ All we know is that MQM-P has not been given false assurances,” he said.

Responding to a question, the MQM-P leader said MQM was not linked to any cases pertaining to the 12 May riots. Following the General Election 2018, the party had decided to join the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to form the federal government. The alliance had continued ahead of the presidential election.
