PTI makes an open offer to MQM as a last resort to woo the ally

Islamabad: Sindh Governor Imran Ismail and Defence Minister Pervez Khattak held talks with Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P), the key ally and partner of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), after it opted to abandon the ruling coalition and join the opposition to support no-confidence move against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

According to details, a two-member government team held talks with MQM late Tuesday night to win its support to foil the joint opposition’s no-trust motion against Prime Minister.

While talking to media, Sindh Governor said that he had taken the message of the Premier to the MQM leaders and had an important meeting with them.

“I hope MQM-P will make the right decision,” said Dr Imran Ismail, adding that the MQM and the joint opposition accord were not discussed during the meeting.

He further added, “We have offered another ministry, however, if they want more than that, we are willing to do so”.

Referring to the agreement between joint opposition and MQM, he said that he had only seen Faisal Sabzwari’s tweet on television.

“I have no idea, what agreement has been finalized between both,” he added.

Senior MQM leader Faisal Sabzwari also confirmed the deal on Twitter, saying the agreement has been finalized and the details will be provided at 6pm today.
