Would rather die than join PSP or any other party, says Farooq Sattar
“I would rather die than join PSP or any other political party,” he said during an emergency presser held at his house early morning on Sunday.
“None of my party’s MPAs or MNAs joined PSP of their own free will,” he claimed.
Sattar appealed to the chief justice and army chief to meet him so that he could present his case. He expressed concern that the upcoming general elections would not be held in a transparent manner in Karachi.
“A conspiracy is being hatched to keep MQM-P out of the electoral process,” he said.
Farooq claimed that a perception was being formed on purpose that MQM-P’s days were numbered. He said that he was ready to go to GHQ for his rights.
“I will not come back before I present my stance before the apex court and GHQ,” he said. “I want to share secrets with the chief justice.”
MQM’s Nishat Zia decides to remain in party
“Anees Qaimkhani invited me to join the party,” he said. “Farooq Sattar has assured me that we are all together so I have decided to stay.”
Another MQM-P member Jamal Ahmad said that PSP representatives were forcing him to join the party since the past five days.
“After today’s decision, I can be killed,” he said. “I had no other option but suicide left.”
Sattar categorically denied joining the PSP or any other party a few days after he admitted during SAMAA TV’s program Awaz that he was receiving offers from the PSP and the PPP to join their respective parties. APP/AFP
