PTI and MQM-P have engaged harsh statements are PM Shehbaz Sharif nominated Nasreen Jalil for the governorship of Sindh.

MQM-Pakistan had left the government after opposition parties had filed the No-Confidence Motion against the PTI government. MQM-P has once again joined the coalition government. Following the nomination of Nasreen Jalil by PM Shehbaz Sharif, she will become the second female governor of Sindh after Begum Rana Liaqat Ali Khan.

Former minister Fawad Chaudhry criticized the decision of appointing Nasreen Jalil as the next governor of Sindh. Objecting, Fawad Chaudhry said Nasreen Jail had written a letter to Indian High Commission asking for help back in 2015.

“The crime minister has nominated Nasreen Jalil as the new governor of Sindh. On June 18, 2015, she wrote a letter to the Indian High Commission seeking cooperation against the law enforcement agencies of Pakistan. He is returning after being cleared by the security agencies,” said Fawad Chaudhry in a tweet.

Former Governor Sindh Imran Ismail also slammed the decision. He said: “It seems that to be part of the government, one must either be on bail or be an expert in subtle attacks on security agencies.”

Subsequently, MQM leader Faisal Subzwari came to counter the criticism leveled by PTI leaders. He said: “Only with the support of this “filth” could Imran Khan become the Prime Minister and you the Federal Minister. And to stay in office and stay, we were called “Nafis” by Khan Sahib, visited our head office on March 3 and kept begging till March 5 not to leave the government. The story of Paki Daman did not increase so much,” to Fawad Chaudhry.

Meanwhile, responding to Imran Ismail he said it was the mistake of the party to not remove the name of the Indian High Commissioner from the list but the letter was sent to the Chief Justice of Pakistan and Chief of Army Staff as well.
