KARACHI: After Farooq Sattar did not arrive at a party meeting of MQM-Pakistan on Thursday to preside over a meeting, speculations were rife that a minus Farooq Sattar formula was in the works.
After MQM-Pakistan chief Dr Farooq Sattar excused himself from attending the party's important meeting rumours were doing the rounds that Sattar was upset with party leaders.
In his absence, MQM-P leader Kamran Tessori announced that Deputy Convener of the party, Kanwar Naveed, would preside over the important meeting.
"Whatever decision we take, we will inform the media afterwards," said Tessori. "Kanwar Naveed is the Deputy Convener and one of our most senior members. He will preside over the party meeting," he added.
In response to a question whether a 'Minus Farooq' formula was in the works, Tessori cracked a joke negating the perception.
