KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Central President Makhdom Javed Hashmi arrived here on Monday for a trip designed to patch differences between his party and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM). The PTI leader said that his party had no enmity with MQM. However, he was quick to rule out any alliance with any political party in the country for the coming elections. “We shall fight the election from our own platform,” Hashmi told reporter at the Jinnah International Airport. During the trip Hashmi will meet party workers and look firsthand at the situation in Sindh. On the issue of new provinces, Hashmi added that PTI was in favour of making new provinces, as without them it was difficult to maintain law and order and peace in the country.
