U-turn: Farooq Sattar takes back his decision to quit politics

Hours after quitting the party and politics, Farooq Sattar, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan’s Chief takes back his decision by saying that the decision to form an alliance with Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) was still intact, however, MQM would contest the 2018 general elections under its own symbol and manifesto.

Earlier, while speaking to media, Sattar said that he was saddened and hurt by the response he got from PSP and his own leaders.

“Yesterday, we were left disappointed” he remarked.

He said that PSP Chief Kamal agreed to unite with me but then he also said that MQM belongs to its founder

“I want to tell him that MQM belonged to its founder till August 22, 2016 and even then, MQM was the party of muhajirs and the oppressed.”

He said that Muhajirs have been heart broken since yesterday because they didn’t expected to merge with a party which never speaks about the injustice against Muhajirs rather explicitly speaking about MQM-Pakistan.

Reacting to PSP’s claims of “burying MQM”, Sattar said “Go, and get a mandate first and then speak about burying MQM.”
