National government is in the offing, though it’s viability and modality is still very much engulfed in the dark clouds of ifs and buts, and also there are numerous questions to be answered yet from both sides. MQM is one of them.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement has once again gained seats in Karachi and Hyderabad, and in many constituencies where they have won, the opponents are decrying the results and raising hell with the allegations of rigging. It’s been the hallmark of MQM to act negative and then become a victim.
Anway, MQM has tasted the pleasures of power, and they now want to stick with it. They want to become part of any government in center and in the Sindh province. It’s clear that PPP would form the government in Sindh Assembly, and also in the center, and MQM now wants to be the part of both.
The leaders of PPP from Karachi are dead against the joining hands of MQM with PPP, as they have not forget the massacre of 12th May,
2008 2007. These leaders consider PML-Q and MQM on the same grounds and they do not like when Asif Ali Zardari talks about also including them in the fray.
