MQM forms Central Council to expand party structure


KARACHI – The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has created a Central Council in a bid to expand its party structure across the country, announced Rabita Committee Deputy Convenor Dr Farooq Sattar at a press conference on Sunday at the party headquarters Nine-Zero.
A decision to form the Central Council was taken by the Rabita Committee after extensive deliberations, Sattar explained, with the council set to assist the Rabita Committee in meeting important national challenges and formulating important policies.
The Council shall also play a role in drafting and promoting the MQM’s electoral manifesto and the political programmes of the party. Sattar claimed that the MQM’s ideology and philosophy is gaining widespread acceptance in all provinces, and people from all walks of life are joining the party in large numbers.
He said that such a large influx of people into the party means that citizens have pinned their hopes on the MQM to rid the country of political and economic crises, and to bring to an end to the “corrupt feudal system, perpetuation of dynastic politics and degenerate political system.”
“We are confident that establishing the Central Council will augur well for the country,” Sattar said, adding that the MQM appealed to political, religious, and social personalities, doctors, engineers, lawyers, industrialists, former bureaucrats, sportsmen, artistes, retired army officers, intellectuals and all others to step forward and join the MQM.
