KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain telephoned Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) leader Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman to discuss key political issues, on Thursday.
According to sources the telephone call lasted for about twenty minutes wherein the two leaders discussed playing the role of joint opposition in the National Assembly and Senate. Altaf assured Fazal-ur-Rehman that MQM will support Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam in the Senate.
Fazal-ur-Rehman said that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has repeatedly broken its promises made to both the masses and political parties.
Earlier, MQM had boycotted the Azad Jammu and Kashmir elections, blaming the PPP for rigging the election and had filed a petition in the SHC against it. Ministers in the party had tendered their resignation with President Asif Ali Zardari.
