Shehbaz Sharif seeks MQM cooperation for no-confidence move against govt

LAHORE (92 News) – Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif has sought the cooperation of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) for a no-confidence move against the government.

Talking to the media after a meeting with the MQM delegation on Tuesday, he said that it was part of politics that today's ally is an opponent tomorrow. "The MQM should think first as Pakistani and then an ally, otherwise the nation will question you," he added.

Shehbaz Sharif said that Imran Khan is striving to push the opposition to the wall. "Nawaz Sharif spent billions of rupees on the development of Karachi and restored its peace," he maintained.

MQM leader Amir Khan said that he was frightened by the destruction caused by Imran Niazi. "The local bodies can be enough authorized if the SC verdict is followed."

He said children were tortured during the protest in Karachi.

To a question about cooperation with the opposition, he said that nothing was decided yet. "We will present the situation before our leadership when it will clear. There is no doubt that the economy is in trouble and each area in Sindh has become a ruin," he added.

Earlier, A delegation of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) led by Amir Khan called on PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif at Model Town. Both sides discussed the political and economic situation. PML-N leaders Ahsan Iqbal, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Miftah Ismail and party spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb were also present.

Meanwhile, the MQM delegation called on the PML-Q leadership to inquire after the health of Chaudhary Shujaat.

Talking to the media after the meeting, Punjab PML-Q president Chaudhary Pervaiz Elahi said that the no-confidence move was not discussed in the meeting. "The opposition has just collected the items in the kitchen and nothing has been cooked yet," he added.
