F.P. Report

Karachi: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) chief Farooq Sattar on Sunday said he would “rather die than join PSP or any other party”.

“The matter is both quite important and very serious, and may pertain to the future of Pakistan, might also be related to the fate of Muhajirs,” he said.

He made these statements while responding to the jumping ship of several party members into the Pakistan Sarzameen Party (PSP).

The MQM-P Leader further claimed that the process of “trying to force changes in loyalties” has already been initiated. “I’m risking my life … putting my life on the line,” Sattar added.

“I’m receiving life threats over phone calls from PSP man day and night; they invite me to join PSP”. He said. The MQM-P leader expressed confusion about why his party and PSP were expected to merge.

“I need some time. I wish to meet the Chief Justice (of Pakistan) of the Supreme Court. “I also intend to go to the Army Chief (Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa),” he stated.
