Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Dr Farooq Sattar has decided to break his silence over party matters.

According to sources, Sattar has decided to break his silence over party matters and would hold an important news conference in Karachi Press Club.

He is also expected to announce his future plan of action during the news conference, sources said.

Sattar stepped back from party matters after he was not issued a ticket for the by-elections. He had also resigned the party’s top decision-making body, Rabita Committee.

The resignation had come in the backdrop of Sattar’s confirmation that he was consulting with his close friends over an offer he had received from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to join the party.

Moreover, differences between Sattar and another leader of the party, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, had intensified prior to the General Elections 2018 held on July 25, following which MQM-P was split into two groups – Sattar’s PIB and Siddiqui’s Bahadurabad faction.
