In a joint press conference, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf allies Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), Grand Democratic Alliance and others assured them of their full support in the Senate elections.
This was confirmed in a joint press conference after a long meeting that took place at the Minister for Defence Production Zubaida Jalal’s residence. Amin ul Haq, Minister for Information Technology and Telecommunication, Finance and Revenue Affairs Minister Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, and several other federal ministers were also part of the meeting.
Haque said that we do have some reservations with the government but we will support them in the upcoming Senate poll.
Furthermore, he criticised the Pakistan Peoples Party for their absurd policies and said that they have destroyed the province. “In 13 years, they did not provide 13 gallons of water for Karachi and neither did they give 13 buses for Karachi. I want to make it clear to the Sindh government, no one will be allowed to interfere in Karachi’s development.”
GDA’s representative and Federal Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination Fehmida Mirza said the government was passing ordinances as it was facing hurdles in the National Assembly from the corrupt opposition parties.
“If we want to close the doors of corruption, then there is a need for proportionate representation,” the minister said.
