In a session of Rabitta Committee, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) on Friday (Nov. 9) has decided to expel its former leader Farooq Sattar from the party and also cancelled Sattar’s basic party membership due to violating ‘party discipline’. Earlier committee issued show-cause notice to Sttar.
“Considering all details, the coordination committee has unanimously decided to strip Dr Farooq Sattar of the party’s basic membership for his serious violations of party discipline and constitution, grouping within the organisation and other serious party violations,” said a statement issued by the committee.
“The coordination committee has directed all workers not to maintain any sort of contact with Dr Farooq Sattar from today onwards. Strict action will be taken against those who violate [this directive].” MQM-P leader Khawaja Izhar ul Hassan said that “the party’s rules and regulations are known to everyone and someone flouting rules cannot stay in the party”.
Sattar had resigned from, Rabita Committee last month and stepped back from party matters after he was not issued a ticket for the by-election.
