KARACHI: Senior MQM-Pakistan leader Amir Khan said on Thursday that he categorically rejected the demand to dissolve MQM and contest elections under a new symbol or party.
“I am standing by the name of MQM and its election symbol,” he said. “Will disclose my next plan of action after meeting with the Rabita Committee.”
Reportedly, workers and supporters from MQM-Pakistan have started to establish contact with Amir Khan.
Workers of the party had been shocked when PSP chief Mustafa Kamal and Farooq Sattar had held a joint presser at Karachi Press Club to announce a coalition between the two parties.
Mustafa Kamal had announced that the two parties would unite and fight the upcoming election under a new party, with a new election symbol and a new name.
This, Kamal said, was to prevent the vote bank of the Urdu speaking community from being divided in Sindh especially its urban cities.
