MQM undecided on joining government


The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Information Department has said that the founder and leader of MQM Altaf Hussain has given an analysis on the quest for power and the changes in human behaviour in the light of MQM’s history while talking to the provisional co-ordination committee, the dissolved co-ordination committee and office-bearers of various wings of the party.
The press release issued by the information department highlighted one such point that was quoted out of context and gave the impression that the MQM had taken a final decision on the issue of joining or not joining the coming government.
The press note further said that the address of Hussain was based on historical and academic analysis, and it had nothing to do with the current and future policy of the MQM. It added that Hussain was only analysing the underlying causes that brought a change in the outlook of some office-bearers and workers since the inception of APMSO in 1978.
Moreover, it said Hussain wanted to convey that power and retention of powerful offices for long periods of time usually transformed an individual into a different mould. He cited the example of the corrupt political culture in which people rarely saw their representatives after elections.
He had said that priorities of people changed when they come in power.
Furthermore, he said that every individual in the movement should discharge his responsibilities honestly. They should know that moderation should be exercised to restrain uncontrolled desires.
According to the press note, the MQM had not taken any decision about joining the new government or sitting on the opposition benches. All options in this regard were open to debate and decision would be taken in the light of the majority opinions of workers and the public.


  1. Don't worry MQM will definitely join the government, Has MQM ever been out of the government? They will run a parallel government as usual, But it may be difficult for them to continue the same blackmailing as they did in disastrous Asif Zardari's stint,

  2. It is for the govt to decide moron. Nobody wants you but only the likes of you whoever they may turnout to be.
