Sattar allows Bahadurbad wing to nominate four candidates for Senate elections

Backing down in the party dispute over Senate candidates, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan's recently ousted party head Dr. Farooq Sattar has withdrawn from selection and nomination of candidates for upcoming election of Parliament's Upper House, Samaa reported Friday. MPA Faisal Sabzwari said they would foil conspiracies against the unity and solidarity of the party as MQM was sustained by the innumerable sacrifices of party workers and their families in interests of political struggle.

"After days of consultations, we have made a decision to offer those in Bahadurabad that they can submit their four names for Senate nominations and we will accept those", said the party leader. "You (Bahadurabad wing) are deliberately holding an illegal party session". Taking a swipe at the "dissolved" Coordination Committee for illegally convening the party's general workers meeting, he charged that it was done with the help of government's machinery and manpower.

He also called all those at the Bahadurabad wing to join him, saying that a party is not known by the officer bearers but rather than its activists.

Farooq Sattar further said that the "dissolved" coordination committee has no authority to summon workers' conversion, adding that intra-party elections would be held on Feb 18 as per schedule. However, he said he was ready to bury the hatchet, but the Bahadurabad wing instead brought the matter in the limelight. "I have more responsibilities, should also be given more authority", he said adding that he was not asking for the power which MQM founder wielded. "We will accept the names and will withdraw the remaining ones", Sattar offered to the "Bahadurabad group", which removed him from the party's top position on Sunday, and appointed Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui as the new MQM-P chief. He told that the Rabita Committee will put forth four names for the Senate polls which he will accept.

He said that he has been informed through mutual friends that Kamran Tessori was disgruntled and was now in Islamabad, adding that he was disheartened by the current situation.

The latest episode of infighting between two factions of the party started over the issue of distribution of party tickets for next month's Senate elections, with the Bahadurabad group opposing Sattar's nomination of relative newcomer Kamran Tessori over seasoned party leader.

Earlier, Sattar had announced that he was dissolving the party's Rabita Committee, hours after members of the coordination committee at the party's Bahadurabad office said he was no longer the convener of the party. He said he always stood by the principles and upheld the cause of genuine workers of the party.
