KARACHI: MQM Chief Altaf Hussain and President Asif Ali Zardari in a telephonic conversation agreed to play their role in the progress and prosperity of the country besides strengthening of the democracy, Geo News reported.

According to MQM Spokesman, the telephonic conversation was held in a cordial environment and lasted for 45 minutes.

PPP-MQM negotiations: No talks yet, but plenty of conversation

Published: September 4, 2011

" It was a political manoeuvre to attract public attention and to create a new agenda for the media to discuss," MQM sources, on talks with PPP.

KARACHI: While the much awaited talks between the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement failed to materialise on Sunday, PPP leaders continued their long-drawn out wooing of their estranged allies with both Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and Interior Minister Rehman Malik making it a point to call MQM chief Altaf Hussain on his return from a hospital in London.

Contrary to reports that circulated in virtually the entire media on Saturday, there were no talks held between the PPP and the MQM on Sunday, and none appear to have been scheduled at all. There was no mention of even a future date for a meeting until the filing of this story, according to sources familiar with the situation.

According to statements released by the MQM, the party chief has returned to his London home after having recovered from his as yet undisclosed illness. Hussain had earlier been admitted to a hospital because of his condition, though the party has not yet said what he suffered from nor said how serious it was. The statement said that the MQM chief had been advised ‘complete rest’ by his doctors.

In what appears to be a bid to reassure his supporters, the MQM leader gave a speech on Sunday to the party’s central coordination committee, which had gathered to hear Hussain via telephone at Nine Zero, the MQM’s party headquarters in Karachi.


Once he had returned home, he was telephoned by the prime minister and the interior minister. Statements released by the party about those conversations suggest that little more than Hussain’s health was discussed as the leaders from both parties exchanged pleasantries.


Hussain, did, however, state that the MQM was a ‘democracy-loving’ party and would ‘foil all designs’ against democracy in Pakistan, leading some observers to believe that this was a veiled reference by the MQM chief towards talk of a military operation that has been circulating in the media.


Prime Minister Gilani, however, seemed more explicit in his desire for the MQM to rejoin the ruling coalition, saying that the popularity of the MQM was ‘a political reality’.

‘Pressure tactics’


Meanwhile, sources close to the MQM claimed that the reports of a scheduled meeting between the MQM and the PPP had been deliberately circulated by the PPP leadership in order to pressure the MQM through the media.


“It was a political manoeuvre to attract public attention and to create a new agenda for the media to discuss,” said one source, adding that the MQM had not been formally informed of the date for the talks.


Both the spokesperson of the Sindh government and the MQM denied on Sunday that any talks had been scheduled.


The MQM sources, did, however, give broad hints about what it would take for the party to begin talks on rejoining the ruling coalition for the third time since the February 2008 elections.


“If they (PPP) want the MQM return to the coalition government, they should come to the MQM with a clear mind and assurances that they (PPP) would show respect to the public mandate of the MQM,” said the sources.


The source hinted that the MQM considered former Sindh senior minister Zulfiqar Mirza’s allegations against the party to be a game-changer and would require more concessions from the PPP before rejoining the government.

The distance between ruling party PPP and MQM seem to be narrowing as both President Asif Ali Zardari and MQM chief Altaf Hussain have agreed to play their role for the development, prosperity and strengthening of democracy in the country. The agreement was made in a telephonic conversation held between the two leaders.

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Chief Altaf Hussain in his telephonic conversation with President Asif Ali Zardari and thanked him for sending a bouquet and inquiring about his health.
According to MQM spokesman, the talks between Altaf Hussain and Asif Ali Zardari continued for about 45 minutes in which both the leaders agreed on promotion of democracy and progress of the country.
Earlier, another round of talks between Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad and the PPP team was held at the Governor’s House to strike a deal regarding the MQMs return to the government, reported a private TV channel.
Former law minister Babar Awan headed the PPP team and Sindh Minister for Local Government Agha Siraj Durrani accompanied him as a member. The talks continued for more than two hours and the governor briefed the visitors about the outcome of his talks with Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah, held on Saturday.

No, the question is why? If MQM don't get the ministries they want then they start killing people. Whenever someone exposes MQM they challenges their creditability. This proves that Dawn News is creditable and MQM is negotiating with govt. to come back since at-least last 6 weeks.

Its not about the ministries, never was. Its about the recent round of controversies with MQM, be it Imran Farooq case or Zulfiqar Mirza, all have one common purpose, to get MQM back in government. The ministries MQM gets this time will be fewer than they had last time and all major ministries MQM had have already been given to PML-Q and F

Exposes MQM? Of course Dawn is credible, I was just remarking on the fact that every week every media outlet carries news of MQMs impending return. They are all stating the same thing, we will see when they join.
