The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan leader Dr Farooq Sattar on Thursday resigned from the party’s top decision-making body, Rabita Committee.
“I have tendered my resignation due to personal reasons,” Sattar told journalists.
The development has come in the backdrop of Sattar’s confirmation that he is consulting with his close friends over an offer he had received from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to join the party.
“PTI wants me to contest the by-election on NA-247 from Alvi's seat,” the MQM-P leader further said.
MQM-P confirmed receiving Dr Sattar's resignation letter. The party spokesperson said that a delegation will soon meet its former chief to address his reservations.
