ISLAMABAD - Though Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) is still unwilling to rejoin the federal cabinet, yet the party may evolve a strategy to get maximum vibrant ministries in rightsizing of Sindh cabinet, which is expected by the end of this month. MQM may make efforts to get around 40 per cent of the total strength of Sindh cabinet in the expected trimming phase, MQM sources told The Nation. The sources said that the senior party members were not giving preference to discuss the matter regarding rejoining the federal cabinet as this might be deliberated after the expected reformation of Sindh cabinet and other matters. As per the planning after the upcoming rightsizing of Sindh cabinet, the size of the cabinet would be between 25 to 27 as presently there are 44 ministries in the province with three without any portfolio. Background interviews and discussions with party members revealed that the party members in the recent meetings with President Asif Ali Zardari had not discussed the matter regarding rejoining federal cabinet as with other demands banning of Peoples Aman Committee (PAC) remained its preference. When contacted, MQM senior member Syed Tahir Hussain Mashhadi said that MQM had never been much interested in getting maximum ministries in federal and provincial cabinets. Justifying his statement, he said that despite having 25 MNAs in the National Assembly the party had never voiced for getting a major share. The MNAs of ANP and JUI-F are not much in comparison to MQM but they had possessed much ministries in the federal cabinet and we never criticized this matter, Mashhadi maintained. In response to a query about rightsizing in Sindh cabinet, he said that the party would expect the respect of his mandate in this upcoming trimming as MQMs MPAs are in large number. It would also be unfair to award less effective and powerless ministries to MQM in Sindh cabinet, he responded. It may be mentioned here that the MQM party members had recently sorted out its difference with President Asif Ali Zardari in which the government had decided to ban Peoples Aman Committee (PAC). After the settlement of the issue as per its demand, MQM leader Dr. Farooq Sattar announced on behalf of partys Coordination Committee to end boycott of national and provincial assemblies. Meanwhile, political analysts assumed that MQM was adopting delaying tactics to make its stance clear on the issue of rejoining federal cabinet, as any decision in the regards would be made after the reformation of Sindh cabinet. Besides other reasons, they said, MQM response for rejoining federal cabinet is the main cause of delay for second stage of the federal cabinet reformation. It may be mentioned here that the party has distanced itself as a coalition partner from PPP-led government on different issues but now after the recent meeting with the President the widening breach between the main coalition partners has been filled.
