KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) on Sunday announced it will rejoin the federal cabinet after the Pakistan Tehreek-i- Insaf’s government assured development funds for Karachi and Hyderabad along with one more ministry.

More than a couple of months earlier, MQM-P Convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui had announced that he was resigning as federal minister for information technology and telecom because the PTI did not fulfil its promises.

This Sunday, Siddiqui said that the party was satisfied with the progress made by PTI in fulfilling its demands and remarked that MQM-P is now a part of the government.

However, he will not be resuming his office in the federal cabinet. Instead, MNA Aminul Haque would take his place as the information technology and telecom minister.

It is also decided that senior leader Faisal Subzwari will soon be instated into the federal cabinet as a special assistant to the prime minister (SAPM).
