Karachi: Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan’s (MQM-P) disgruntled leader Dr Farooq Sattar on Thursday has decided to resign from MQM-P’s Rabita Committee membership amid deepening rift.
As per details, Sattar claimed he had tendered resignation due to personal reasons. On the other hand, Rabita Committee stated they haven’t yet received resignation of the Sattar.
The development has come in the backdrop of Sattar’s confirmation that 59-year-old leader was all set to join echelons of Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan.
“PTI wants me to contest the by-election on NA-247 from Alvi’s seat,” the MQM-P leader said earlier.
It is pertinent to mention here that Dr Farooq Sattar lost the NA-247 seat to PTI candidate Dr Arif Alvi during the July 25 polls.
The seat is now vacant following the presidential election which saw Dr Alvi being elected as the country’s 13th president.
