KARACHI (Dunya News) – In a bid to convince disgruntled members of the party, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) has summoned an emergency meeting today (Thursday).
The meeting will be held at 5:00pm in Karachi.
Several party members expressed resentment after the Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) chief Farooq Sattar and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) leader Mustafa Kamal announced to forge a joint political alliance and also decided to contest the next general election under a single banner, manifesto and symbol.
In the wake of MQM-P and PSP alliance, several MQM-P leaders met ex-President Asif Ali Zardari for probable inclusion in the PPP.
MQM-P lawmakers Salman Mujahid and Dr. Fauzia Hameed arrived at Islamabad’s Zardari House on Wednesday where the two discussed political matters with the PPP Co-chairman.
Earlier, MQM-P Senator Khushbakht Shujat and MNA Ali Rashid had met Zardari.
Soon after Sattar and Kamal’s joint press conference, MQMP’s Member of National Assembly (MNA) Ali Raza Abidi also announced to quit the party and resign from NA-251 seat.
“This is not what I believed in and stood for,” Abidi mentioned.
