"We had promised the government that we would help in forming the government and we have fulfilled the promise. However, none of our promises were fulfilled,” Siddiqui said while addressing a press conference in Karachi along with senior Muttahida Quami Movement- Pakistan (MQM-P) party leaders in Karachi. "MQM-P is passing through a new phase. It is useless to be in the cabinet," he added. "We did not propose Farogh Naseem's name for the ministry neither we asked for the law ministry." More to follow.

KARACHI: Dr Farooq Sattar, the leader of the allegedly divided Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), reacted Saturday night to Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui's statements, saying he was "saddened" over "broken" trust. "Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui sat with us yesterday. Today, he held a press conference without us," Sattar said, adding that he was unsure of how 12 ministers of the Provincial Assembly (MPAs) "changed loyalties so easily". Noting that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) was celebrating its victory in the recently held Senate elections and the "Bahadurabad peers" were happy to have bagged the "charity" seat, the MQM-P leader asked how would the party be able to prepare for the upcoming general elections given the circumstances. "I'm very saddened; our trust was broken today." "I'm saddened over the press conference held by our 'Bahadurabad' peers'," Sattar commented, addressing media outside his PIB residence. Nevertheless, he announced a major rally after the Election Commission discloses its decision on March 7 and stressed that the Chief Justice of Pakistan should take suo motu notice of the alleged horse-trading during the Senate elections.

Photo: Geo News KARACHI: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Sunday issued a Senate ticket to Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan's (MQM-P) deputy convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui Khalid amid a strong protest from party chief Farooq Sattar. "Senate tickets are being issued without my permission," Sattar said while speaking outside the ECP. Sattar and the party?s coordination committee have been at loggerheads over the allotment of Senate tickets. The rift intensified as the latter wrote a letter to the ECP on Friday, informing the electoral body that the authority to issue party tickets rests with the committee, not the party chief. His protest with the ECP today, however, was futile, as the latter told the disgruntled party chief that he could willingly take up the matter in court. The electoral body maintained that Sattar should have lodged his complaint before the process of scrutiny was completed. "Any Rabita Committee meetings conducted in my absence and any decisions taken thereof can be questioned," the disgruntled party chief told journalists during a press conference in Karachi. Sattar further said that he reserved the right to challenge and question [decisions that were taken by MQM-P's central committee]. "The deputy-convener's role is limited," he said while talking to the media. "He can only assist, not take over the convener's duties." "I don't want to take matters to the court," he said. 'Issuing party tickets is only Rabita Committee's domain' MQM-P's coordination committee, on Friday, had delegated the authority to deputy-convener Siddiqui to nominate party members for the upcoming Senate elections on March 3. Addressing the media on the same day, Rabita committee member Faisal Subzwari had claimed that according to the party's constitution, the authority to nominate members for elections did not lie with the convener or any individual. "This right is the sole privilege of the coordination committee, which has transferred it to deputy-convener [Siddiqui]," he had told journalists. Rabita Committee retracts letter to ECP The rift between PIB Colony and Bahadurabad factions of the party intensified after the latter wrote a letter to the ECP in an attempt to wrest authority from Sattar. The letter informed the electoral body that the authority to issue party tickets rests with the Rabita Committee, not the party chief. It also stated that as per Section 19(a) of the party's constitution, the authority to nominate candidates for election rests with the Rabita Committee. The letter was later rescinded after the coordination committee announced that it was making new efforts to reconcile with party chief.
