KARACHI (62 News) – Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Secretary General Raza Haroon on Tuesday has termed Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) Chief Farooq Sattar as 12th player of the match who is only a fielder, not captain.
Talking to media outside Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) office, Raza Haroon lashed out at Farooq Sattar, saying that his character is dubious. He said the MQM which Sattar talks about has already dissolved.
He said that Farooq Sattar has good sense of politics but his yesterday’s statement were strange as no one expected such kind of words from him, continuing that MQM is not improving its status despite getting Rs25 billion from the ruling party.
Talking on the issue of Senate elections, Raza Haroon offered the MQM leaders, who are not getting the tickets, to join PSP. He said that MQM workers are fighting over one ticket and that they can also slit throats of each others in general elections to get tickets.
“If they had fought for Karachi issues, it would have been better,” he added.
“Sindh is facing crisis, residents of Karachi are forced to drink poisonous water but the party is in a brawl for Senate tickets,” he concluded.
On the other hand, MQM-P has been divided into two groups, following a dispute over nominations for Senate election.
MQM-P in an earlier meeting at the party’s Bahadur Abad office decided to award tickets for the upcoming Senate elections to Farogh Naseem, Nasreen Jalil, Aminul Haque and Shabbir Qaimkhani.
However, MQM-P convener Dr Farooq Sattar suggested the name of deputy convener Kamran Tessori for the ticket which was opposed by Senior Deputy Convener Amir Khan. The party leadership indulged in a heated argument over the names after which Farooq Sattar walked out of the meeting.
