“I will lay bare the secrets of people [who] have made and owned properties in Dubai in a week,” Sattar added, explaining that he had challenged party leaders Amir Khan and Kunwar Naveed Jamil to call a meeting of the workers.

The former MQM-P leader further mentioned that his “fault” was that he “asked members to disclose their sources of income”. That, he said, ultimately led to his exit.

“‘Minus one’ was an accident but ‘minus two’ was being planned for a year,” he asserted.

Earlier in the day, the political party, already in tatters after having faced internal conflicts recently, issued an official notification to expel Sattar and advised workers via the Rabita Committee, its top decision-making body, to cut communication with him.

Differences between Sattar and another party leader, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, had intensified prior to the July 25 general elections, following which the MQM-P was split into two groups the former’s PIB faction and the latter’s Bahadurabad one.
