Karachi belongs to PTI — we got the most votes: Asad Umar
KARACHI: Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar said on Friday that Karachi does not “belong” to the MQM but to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, as the latter gained more votes from the metropolis in the general elections of 2018 than any other party.
The federal minister was speaking to reporters in the port city on Friday afternoon when he said: “We [the PTI] are working for the people of Karachi,” with MQM as a partner.
After an earlier meeting with MQM-Pakistan leaders, Asad Umar had claimed that progress had been made in talks with the key ally.
“Both PTI and MQM-P are striving for development projects for Karachi and it is a stark reality that what the mega-city deserves is not being given to it,” he told the media. – Statesman
