The MQM-Pakistan has threatened to quit the PML-N-led coalition government in the Centre over its disagreement with the PPP on delimitation of constituencies in Karachi and Hyderabad. Addressing a press conference in Karachi on Sunday, senior MQM-P leader Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said his party would quit the coalition government if local government elections were held without carrying out fresh delimitations of the constituencies. “We received information through the media that the local body elections are going to be held on January 15. We are not officially an ally of the PPP, but we entered into an agreement with the PPP related to the Sindh,” he added. Maqbool said that his party was ready to contest the LB polls if they were held in a fair and transparent manner. “The delimitations of the constituencies are controversial. Dozens of meetings have been held with the leaders of the PPP in which we demanded them to immediately change constituencies of Karachi and Hyderabad,” he said. While demanding the Election Commission of Pakistan to carry out fresh delimitations, Maqbool highlighted the pre-poll rigging attempt saying that union councils under the influence of MQM consist of 90,000 population while other UCs were created based on 20,000 to 25,000 people. “If the constituencies are not fixed then we will take to the streets and stage protests. It is up to the workers to decide whether to fight while staying in the government and or protest after leaving the government,” the MQM leader remarked. Earlier, Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori urged the PPP to fulfil the promises it made to the MQM-P.
