KARACHI -  Mohajir Ittehad Tehreek (MIT) Chairman Saleem Haider on Saturday visited Dr Farooq Sattar’s residence and MQM-P Bahadurabad office with a message to both sides to sort out their differences and work for rights of the Mohajir community.

Saleem, after the prevailing turmoil in the MQM-P, came up with a plan to unite the two factions before the general elections.

According to details, the MIT chairman along with other party leaders, including Nadeem Mirza and Fareed Khan, visited MQM-P leader Dr Farooq Sattar’s residence in PIB Colony.

During the meeting with Sattar, the MIT delegates urged MQM-P leader to come forward and sort out all differences between two groups of the party that surfaced earlier over award of Senate tickets. Saleem said the MQM-P leadership should move together keeping aside their personal differences and work for betterment of the Mohajir community. He said the MIT movement was initiated decades ago for the rights of the Mohajir community and it was ready to play its role to bring the Mohajirs out of the crisis. He said this was the time for all forces to unite for rights of Mohajirs instead of making any further divisions in their ranks.

Later, the MIT delegates also visited MQM-P headquarters in Bahadurabad and called on members of the coordination committee. During the meeting, Saleem informed MQM-P leader Nasreen Jalil that MIT was making efforts to bring all forces on one page because this was not the time to indulge in fighting and cause further loss to the Mohajir community. He said that MIT had a plan to wage a joint struggle for rights of Mohajirs.

Saleem pointed out that due to the ongoing crisis in the party ranks workers seemed quite unhappy and majority of them had decided to stay home. He said this was not a good sign. He urged the MQM-P leadership to come forward and play their role for the Mohajir community. He asked the party leaders to dispel the impression of division within the party.
