PPP’s Sathi Ishaq joins MQM af­ter 35-year af­fil­i­a­tion with party

Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY -

KARACHI—Pak­istan Peo­ples Party (PPP) leader Sathi Ishaq on Wed­nes­day joined Mut­tahida Qaumi Move­ment (MQM). He was given a warm wel­come as he reached MQM head­quar­ters Ninezero to make the an­nounce­ment.

While ad­dress­ing the me­dia, MQM Rabita com­mit­tee’s Se­nior deputy con­vener Amir Khan stated that “rot­ten eggs” are leav­ing the party and those hav­ing good fame are join­ing MQM.

Re­fer­ring to­wards Pak Sarzameen Party’s (PSP) public meet­ing held on Sun­day, he added that the rally in Karachi or­gan­ised by ‘con­science-sell­ers’ ended up fruit­less as the peo­ple re­jected them.

Khan said that ever since the lot of con­science-sell­ers sup­ported by the es­tab­lish­ment and oc­cult pow­ers sur­faced, there has been an in­crease in the ap­pre­hen­sion of the party’s work­ers and lead­ers. He added that de­spite all the al­le­ga­tions and pro­pa­ganda against MQM, the peo­ple still voted for the party in the lo­cal bod­ies elec­tions and the by-elec­tions.

Sathi Ishaq, who re­mained af­fil­i­ated with PPP for 35 years, made his an­nounce­ment of join­ing MQM dur­ing the press con­fer­ence.—NNI
