Minus-chief formula is not acceptable, says Sattar


KARACHI: Mutahhida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) PIB Group Chairman Farooq Sattar on Monday said that minus-chief formula is not acceptable.

Addressing a separate party workers convention at Liaqautabad flyover, Sattar recalled sacrifices by the workers over the years. “The minus-chief 2 formula is being conspired inside the party,” said Sattar.

Rejecting the resignation of Kamran Tessori, who decided to part ways with MQM-P to end division in the party, Sattar announced to start the campaign for general elections.

MQM-P was divided into two factions, Sattar-led PIB Group and Rabta Committee’s Bahadurabad Group, over the distribution of Senate tickets.

Farooq Sattar announced the ticket for new-comer Kamran Tessori which was strongly opposed by Rabita Committee mainly by Amir Khan. Since then, both groups have been calling party meetings separately.

The Rabita Committee has also written to Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to remove Farooq Sattar from the position of party convener.
