‘PPP, MQM agree on some points of LG system’


The Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) have agreed on some points of the local government system in Sindh, Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad said on Wednesday. “A bill will be introduced soon in the Sindh Assembly with some good points from both the local government systems of 1979 and 2001,” he added. He was speaking to participants of Pakistan Navy’s 41st staff course.
The governor said that negotiations between the MQM and the PPP are under way. “No political party has any objection on the ongoing targeted operations in the city and all of them agree that action should be taken against the criminals who use the names of political parties,” he added. The governor appreciated the Supreme Court’s verdict about making Karachi weapon-free and eliminating political parties’ militant wings.
