MQM to obtain one more ministry

ISLAMABAD: Amid a political tug of war between the govt and the opposition to gain the highest support over the passage of the federal budget, Prime Minister Imran Khan has chosen to provide one more ministry to Muttahida Qaumi Movement ( MQM). The late-night choice was taken after a conference with Sindh Governor Imran Ismail and also MQM leaders.

Based on the PM Office, the prime minister also decided to publicize improvement packages for Karachi and Hyderabad. He also formed a committee comprising Law Minister Farogh Naseem and the Sindh governor to implement the choices.

Currently, the MQM has 2 federal ministries — law and information technology. On the other hand, the opposition claimed that the govt would not be able to have the budget passed with a simple majority as its ally Balochistan National Party-Mengal would not vote in favors of the budget.
