KARACHI: Chief of Awami Muslim League (AML), Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, on Wednesday arrived in Karachi and held a meeting with leaders of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Samaa reported.

According to Samaa correspondent, the two sides discussed possibilities of political cooperation and common grounds for politics in the current scenario.

The meeting between Rasheed, a seasoned politician and ally of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan, and MQM, an opposition party in Sindh, is being given importance in the wake of PTI’s Nov 30 rally in Islamabad.

Rashid told reporters after his meeting at MQM headquarters, Nine Zero, that he enjoyed longstanding relations with the party chief Altaf Hussain. “It’s my desire that all opposition parties join hands in the future,” he said.

MQM’s Babar Ghari said his party’s doors were open for all despite political differences. “We are also in the favour of transparent elections and electoral reforms in the country,” he said.

Khan has called his ‘tigers’ to gather in the federal capital for a ‘decisive’ showdown on Nov 30 for which he has been mobilizing masses across the country through party rallies.

The called has prompted the federal government and interior ministry to take measure to deal with the protest.

Shipping containers have been placed on Shahra-e-Dastoor and outside the Parliament lodges in Islamabad, with thousands of police personnel are likely to be deployed in couple of days.

Khan and chief of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri led thousands of their supporters for protest sit-in in Islamabad at the end of August this year, calling for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s resignation.
 
However, Dr. Qadri ended his protest camping in mid Oct, setting off countrywide rallies seeking to topple the government.  – Samaa
