KARACHI: Presenting a ‘charge-sheet’ against the party Convenor Farooq Sattar, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan’s Coordination Committee on Sunday formally removed the party head Farooq Sattar from the top position, Samaa reported.
The decision was announced by MQM-P senior leader Kunwar Naveed Jamil at a press conference following Coordination Committee’s meeting.
The party took this decision after Election Commission allowed MQM-P deputy-convener, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui the power to hand out party tickets for upcoming Senate elections.
Naveed Jamil said that Farooq Sattar has been removed for his ‘negligence’.
“MQM’s registration was cancelled by the ECP only due to Dr Farooq Sattar’s negligence,” he said.
He said Farooq Sattar was also involved in purposefully sabotaging the Khidmat-e-Khalq Foundation [the welfare arm of the MQM] by committing gross mismanagement in its affairs.
Naveed Jamil also said Farooq Sattar also pushed Nazeer Hussain University into severe financial crisis.
“Dr Farooq Sattar also altered the party constitution to his own benefit and siphoned all authorities and powers to himself,” Jamil further alleged while announcing the reasons why Sattar was removed. – Samaa
