ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is meeting with a Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) delegation at Prime Minister House on Friday.
Earlier, a spokesperson for PM Nawaz told that the meeting was scheduled to discuss the ongoing operation against criminals in Karachi.
The MQM delegation includes Farooq Sattar, Rasheed Godil and Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui.
Since the Rangers’ raid on MQM’s headquarters earlier this month the party had been looking for a detailed meeting with the prime minister. However, for some unexplained reasons, the prime minister remained unavailable to the MQM leadership.
The MQM had sought an audience with the prime minister during his daylong trip to Karachi on Wednesday, but their efforts remained unfulfilled.
The MQM leaders during a media talk had expressed their disappointment over the prime minister’s refusal to see them.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Farooq Sattar on Friday said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has vowed to investigate the matter of Saulat Mirza’s video recording in a meeting held at PM House on MQM’s request.
During the meeting, the premier assured MQM that the Karachi operation was not aimed at a particular political party.
Answering MQM’s concerns on how a death-row prisoner’s video statement was recorded in prison and then leaked to media, the premier said he will look into the matter and provide details, Farooq Sattar said.
