Babar Awan: MQM’s grievances to be addressed

KARACHI: Federal Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan on Tuesday said that all ‘grievances’ of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) will be addressed.

BABAR awan“I was part of the meeting in which an MQM delegation met with Prime Minister Gilani and President Zardari…also I had a meeting with President Zardari…we are hopeful to remove MQM’s concerns,” Awan said.

Speaking to media representatives, Awan said MQM chief Altaf Hussain’s concerns were genuine and that he fully agreed with the MQM leadership.

MQM has expressed its concern over the socio-economic problems of the people and similar are the views of the government, he added.

Awan said the government was determined to solve the problems of the masses during the next two years.

Awan also praised JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman and said that Rehman played a constructive role in the coalition government.

“Difference of opinion is part of the democratic process and we do not believe in the policy of dictation,” Awan pointed out.

He said the government was in no haste and it would complete its tenure and present a people friendly budget in the next two years.

Awan said that despite the global economic meltdown and the country being in a state of war, Pakistan had achieved significant stability during the last three years and had attracted investment as well.

He said the government had successfully rehabilitated over 2.5 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Swat and simultaneously made efforts to deal with natural disasters.

To a question about the decisions taken recently by the judiciary, Awan said the present government will always respect the judiciary.

About the anti-corruption drive of the present government, he said a major move was in the offing to catch big bank defaulters.

“It would be better for the defaulters to volunteer and surrender the defaulted money,” he added.
