KARACHI Negotiations between the Government and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) over RGST yielded no results and deadlock persisted between the two coalition partners. However, the meeting at the Governors House here on Wednesday, was still in progress till the filing of this report. It has failed to make any breakthrough as both sides are sticking to their stance. The MQM was of the view that it could not go against the interest of masses. It said that instead of bringing the feudal lords and rich people under the tax net and introducing tax reforms, an additional burden is being put on the common man, which would be a fatal blow to them. Sources said that Interior Minister Rehman Malik telephoned Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief, Altaf Hussain, and asked him to support the Government on the Reformed General Sales Tax (RGST) issue. Rehman Malik also assured the MQM chief that all the issues would be resolved through talks. Federal Finance Minister, Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, and Federal Interior Minister Rehman A Malik reached here to woo the coalition partner with regard to enforcement of proposed RGST. The MQM delegation comprising Federal Minister for Overseas Pakistanis, Farooq Sattar, Minister for Ports and Shipping, Babar Khan Ghauri, Deputy Parliamentary Leader in National Assembly, Haider Abbas Rizvi and former city nazim, Mustafa Kamal was talking part in the talks. The Government is facing tough resistance from almost all the major political parties on the enforcement of RGST.
