The United Opposition gave a big surprise to the government before the no-confidence motion, the main coalition party MQM (Pakistan) also left the government
The United Opposition and the MQM have signed an agreement.
The MQM has decided to support the no-confidence motion. Why MQM has left the government and joined the parties like PPP and PMLN which has always oppressed MQM in the past and never fulfilled their agreements made in different occasions.
Now Imran Khan has only 164 members on his side and the united opposition has managed to get the support of 177 national assembly members.
New reports say that Opposition leaders arrived at Parliament Lodges last night and met with MQM leaders.
According to opposition sources, MQM will support the opposition in the no-confidence motion. Maulana Fazlur Rehman has also confirmed that the opposition has reached an agreement with the MQM, which will be formally announced today.
Late last night, ruling party leaders Pervez Khattak and Shah Mehmood Qureshi also telephoned the MQM leadership.
According to the reports, a number of issues were settled between the MQM and the opposition on Tuesday night, after which the MQM assured the united opposition of its support in the no-confidence motion.
According to sources, the MQM has been assured that the amendment in the local body laws will be withdrawn and an MQM administrator will be appointed in Karachi and Hyderabad by Friday before the no-confidence vote. A dozen offices will be opened in Hyderabad.
MQM Pakistan leaders should know that neither PPP and nor PMLN honored any agreements made in the past. How can they trust them?
PPP has totally ignored MQM and Karachi. If MQM leaders think PPP will hold local bodies elections and allow them to have their administrator and develop their constituencies they are sadly mistaken.
Meanwhile, the government will also withdraw false political cases against MQM workers in two to three days with the formation of a new government.
