KARACHI The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), an ally of the ruling PPP in Sindh and at the Centre, has yet to decide about parting its ways with the coalition government despite the fact that it has already collected resignations from its ministers and advisors in Sindh and the Federal government after the emergence of a controversy between the two parties. PPPs leadership did not respond to MQM leadership, while the MQMs Rabita Committee informed the PPPs leadership about the demands of MQM after the announcement of Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani regarding the restoration of Hyderabad District old status. Neither the President nor the Prime Minister contacted the MQM to alloy the MQMs concerns. It may be noted here that the coalition of PPP and MQM had confronted several deadlocks in the past but the leadership of the both parties had resolved the issues through negotiations. The MQM official said that the party had made it clear that it would not compromise on the issue of the Hyderabad district. MQM Chief Altaf Hussain also threatened to quit the government after the announcement of the Prime Minister about the restoration of pre-2005 status of Hyderabad District. The sources in the MQM said that the party has finalized the strategy to leave the government immediately, if the government unilaterally revived the pre-2005 status of Hyderabad. He informed that MQM would leave the government and join the opposition in parliament, saying that MQM had been unconditionally supporting the PPPs led government but the PPP had taken all the decision without taking MQM into the confidence. MQM Rabita Committee member Wasey Jalil when contacted told The Nation that MQM had presented its demands to the ruling PPP. He said that MQM chief had urged President Asif Zardari to intervene and now we are waiting for their reply, and then we will announce our strategy. However, a member of MQM Rabita Committee, on the condition of anonymity, told that so far neither the President nor the Prime Minister had contacted the MQM. He said that the MQM will take every possible step to resist any change in the current status of Hyderabad and Karachi. PPP Provincial Secretary Information Waqar Mehdi said that the PPP leadership and the Sindh Chief Minister had clarified that the Prime Minister statement about the restoration of Hyderabad division was quoted out of context, saying that all the decision will be taken with the consensus of coalition parties. He said that the restoration of Hyderabad division or the revival of five defunct districts of Karachi will be decided with the consensus of coalition parties. He further said that PPPs led government in Sindh was taking all the decision with the suggestions of their coalition partners adding that the extension on local bodies election and all other issues had been decided by the coalition parties through consensus. He hoped that both parties could work together for the betterment of the country, saying that the coalition government in Sindh was not in danger.
