KARACHI: Following days of uncertainty within MQM-P ranks, party leader Farooq Sattar on Friday offered truce to the party’s Bahadurabad group to end the current divide over the issue of Senate tickets.
“After days of consultations, we have decided to offer those in Bahadurabad that they can submit their four names for Senate nominations and we will accept those,” said the party leader.
Sattar said the issue was not related to his ego as “if it was about Farooq Sattar’s ego, the issue would be left hanging”.
Reiterating his earlier stance, the leader said the issue was not over Senate tickets but “something else”.
However MQM-P’s Bahudurabad faction member Aminul Haq welcomed Sattar’s offer and said he will convey it to the Rabita Committee.
Haq again reiterated the faction’s stance and said they had visited Sattar at PIB on three separate occasions and the entire Rabita Committee also waited for him over an hour.
