KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) today has re-introduced its demand to sack present Governor Sindh Dr ishratul Ibad and urged Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) to endorse its stance.

Dr Ishartul Ibad, from december 2002 to present, is the longest serving governor in Pakistan history. He was backed by MQM for the post of  governorship in the early era of Parvez Musharraf.

Until 2011, Ibad was considered a close aide of MQM Supremo Altaf Hussain and ‘a man of crisis’ who could always be relied upon to come up to the expectations of the party chief. Not any more. They now privately accuse him of betraying the party, indulging in corruption for himself and submitting to the Pakistan Peoples Party for personal gains.

MQM had demanded it resignation back in May 2015, but then, due to Rangers pressure, they had silently withdrew their demands.

As the current political scenario has brought two political rivals back on table, MQM has urged PPP to endorse its stance on Sindh governorship as a part of their deal.
