KARACHI - PML-N Sindh MPA Irfanullah Marwat has said that his party’s alliance with the MQM is something which is premature as no such offer has been made to the later. Talking to media here Tuesday, the PML-N leader said he and his colleagues would react to the decision if his party opted for any political alliance with the MQM.

Another PML-N leader Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim said that boycotting the electoral process is a part of democracy but the PPP should avoid such politics. He said getting political support is not something new and almost all parties had used to visit 90 since 1985.

Opposition leader in Sindh Assembly Faisal Sabzwari said that the PPP leaders during their visits to 90 had formally invited his party to join the provincial government. He said that neither his party put any condition nor the PML-N formally invited them to join the federal government during the visit to 90.

PML-F leader Imtiaz Ahmed Shaikh came down hard on the Sindh nationalists, saying that his party’s alliance with the nationalist parties was not against the MQM but was against the Sindh Peoples Local government Act 2012. He said that his party has neither any objection over the visit of MQM’s headquarter 90 nor on alliance. However being an ally party, the PML-N should take the PML-F into confidence on these issues, he added. He said that the PPP’s boycott of presidential poll is against the spirit of democracy.
