Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday (April 4) while addressing the groundbreaking ceremony of Hyderabad University in Islamabad, said that PTI and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) would contest the next general election jointly.
“It seems that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf could join hands with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement in the next elections,” said the premier during his speech in Islamabad at the stone laying ceremony of Hyderabad University. “I always used to think that MQM’s viewpoint — the things that they spoke of — was closely aligned with that of PTI,” he said. “Our only problem was that of militancy which we both thought was wrong.”
His remarks came after he paid a special tribute to Information Technology and Telecommunication Minister Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and Minister for Law and Justice Barrister Dr Mohammad Farogh Naseem — both members of MQM-P as well as his cabinet. “When our government was formed, these two ministers joined our cabinet. We were afraid of what might happen. But today I will say this: there aren’t any cabinet members more refined than these two,” the prime minister said.
