ISLAMABAD: Ousted MQM-P leader Dr Farooq Sattar said that his removal would be remembered as a black decision.  

“It’s an illegal and unconstitutional decision,” said Farooq while responding to ECP’s decision to oust him as MQM-P’s head over recent intra-party elections which saw Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui elected as the party’s new convener.

Dr Farooq Sattar is no more the convener of MQM, ruled the Election Commission of Pakistan. It also nullified the intra-party elections of the PIB group in its short order.

“This decision is unjust as the Election Commission doesn’t have the mandate to rule on intra-party affairs,” he stated

“It’s a managed decision which is aimed at implementing a plan to end MQM’s politics. It’s a plan to give some Karachi's seats to PSP and Bahadurabad faction,” he stated.

The veteran politician that he was punished for following the constitution. “I was punished for saving the MQM on August 23. I was punished for defying the pressure to make an alliance with the PSP,” he said.

Dr Sattar said that MQM-Bahadurabad faction had voted for Sadiq Sanjrani in the Senate’s elections, adding ECP’s decision was their reward.

MQM-Pakistan had split into two groups, PIB and Bahadurabad after differences emerged over Senate's nominations.

The nomination of Kamran Tessori for the Senate election was the bone of contention. The PIB faction was led by Dr Farooq Sattar while Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui was heading the Bahadurabad faction.
