The party leaders at MQM-P’s Bahadurabad office later told media that Farooq Sattar is still their chief but announced suspension of Kamran Tessori from party’s Rabita Committee and from party’s basic membership for six months.Speaking on behalf of his party, veteran MQM-P leader Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said that party had finalised four major names for Senate polls which included veteran leaders Nasreen Jalil, Farogh Nasim, Aminul Haque and Shabbir Qaimkhani while names of Kamran Tessori and Amir Khan were kept at number five and number six; but Sattar wanted Tessori’s name in top four (in order to secure his election as a Senator).Siddiqui maintained that party eased a lot of rules for Sattar and gave Tessori a place in party’s central structure but now the leaders can no longer tolerate violation of party rules on the desire of an individual.
He further revealed that Farooq Sattar claimed that Shabbir Qaimkhani is ready to take back his name for Tessori but Qaimkhani himself denied the claim.
