PTI’s lawmakers drilled holes in government’s boat: Farogh Naseem


KARACHI: Following MQM-P’s formal announcement regarding its decision to part ways from the PTI-led alliance in a bid to support the opposition’s no trust move, Farogh Naseem says that the ruling party’s members have “drilled holes in their boat.

“Revolt of PTI’s own leaders played a key role in the downfall of the government,” he said.

Naseem, who resigned few hours before the MQM-P leadership press conference with the Opposition leaders, said: “Imran Khan is a good person though our decision is purely based on political will.”

He further stated that no one had given any direction or instruction to leave government as MQM-P had taken that decision “independently”.

Responding to a question that how much MQM-P leadership is optimistic about the implementation of the agreement with PPP, Naseem said that he still had some reservations about the agreement, however, after talking to Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, his words “strengthened my confidence as he is also happy about the agreement.”

The MQM-P leader further added that Bilawal had shown signs of positivity, adding that “he [Bilawal] said we need to move ahead taking rural and urban Sindh together.”
