WEB DESK – The patron in chief of Pakistan Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has revealed he ‘keenness’ of Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) to join the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP)’s lead Sindh government.
In a tweet respond on Thursday, Bilawal said that MQM is keen to join Sindh government. He tweeted:

The question posed by a twitter user was that if it improves Karachi’s law and order situation then its MQM’s joining Sindh government is worth having.
Responding to which Bilawal maintained that though MQM was keen to join but support for martial law and speaking against the integrity of Sindh would not make it possible for his party to join hands with Karachi’s largest political party.
Bilawal was referring to the statements of MQM’s supremo Altaf Hussain in which he demanded to divide Sindh in two parts (rural and urban) and another statement where he asked Pakistan Army to take over the government.
For past few months, Asif Ali Zardari’s negotiating expert Rehman Malik was busy in meetings with MQM leaders. Those meeting were scheduled in Karachi and Dubai simultaneously. According to PakistanTribe’s previous reports, the final phase of PPP-MQM negotiations had been launched last week when Asif Ali Zadari on his arrival from Duai ordered party leaders to finalize the deal with MQM.
Last week, leader of MQM Dr Farooq Sattar said that peace in Karachi could easily be achieved if MQM and PPP join hands in Sindh.
However, there were controversial statements made by PPP leaders in this regard. Information Minister of Sindh Sherjeel Memon denied to disclose any information in this regard while Syed Khursheed Shah demanded Altaf Hussain to take back his controversial statements before MQM could join Sindh goverment.
