Party’s doors always open for Sattar: MQM-P convener


KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) convenor Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui has said that former leader Farooq Sattar could rejoin the party “whenever he wanted to”.

“The party can mend ties with Sattar and its doors are always open for him,” the MQM-P convener, who is also the federal minister for information technology, said while speaking to journalists Saturday.

When asked about Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s statement on the federal government not completing its term, he said, “Even if this does happen, Zardari would have no role in it.”

Siddiqui added that the size of the crowds at the MQM-P rally in Hyderabad was a testament to the public support garnered by the party.

Last year in November, Sattar’s party membership was revoked for breaking its discipline and constitution.

Dr Sattar had been at odds with the party’s senior leaders since February 2018.
