ISLAMABAD: (HRNW) In the wake of MQM-P leader Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui’s announcement to resign as federal minister, Prime Minister Imran Khan had a telephonic conversation with Sindh Governor Imran Ismail, ARY News reported.
Sources relayed the premier and the governor discussed the issues alienating the Karachi-based ally of the ruling PTI.
They said a delegation of the PTI will meet MQM-P leaders tomorrow on the directives of the prime minister to address their reservations.
Meanwhile, the governor contacted MQM-P leaders Khawaja Izharul Hassan and Faisal Sabzwari and assured them of resolving all issues through talks. He said an agreement reached with the MQM-P in the past will be implemented.
He said the MQM is an ally of the federal government which will disburse funds for Karachi’s uplift schemes.
Speaking at a press conference earlier today, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said his being a member of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s cabinet served no useful purpose as there has been no progress towards removal of their reservations concerning the issues confronting the port city.
