KARACHI: MQM-Pakistan chief Dr Farooq Sattar will hold an important press conference on Thursday.
Not much has been learned as to what Dr Farooq Sattar will say during his press conference but political pundits are of the opinion that it will be a setback for the unstable alliance between MQM and PSP that started to take shape after yesterday’s joint presser.
Dr Farooq Sattar will, according to party sources, conduct an important press conference at 9pm. The move comes after a meeting of senior MQM-Pakistan leadership was held earlier during the day who reposed confidence in Sattar’s leadership but stated that the party would not change its name, manifesto, or symbol.
Speaking to media personnel after presiding over an important meeting of the party, Naveed said that the entire Rabita Committee had placed confidence in the leadership of Sattar.
“Some confusions were created after yesterday’s joint press conference,” he said. “I urge all workers of MQM-Pakistan and office-bearers of the party not to heed any rumours,” he added.
Kanwar Naveed stated that the party would not only retain its name but also its election symbol and manifesto.
“MQM will contest the next election with the same name, manifesto and election symbol that is the kite,” he said. “MQM will continue to remain as it was before,” he added.
Kanwar Naveed said that the party had formed an alliance with PSP for election 2018. He said that MQM would not form a coalition with anyone over the seats it will win.
