KARACHI: Another provincial lawmaker belonging to the Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) Abdullah Sheikh defected to Pak Sarzameen Party on Wednesday, ARY News reported.
Announcing latest induction to the PSP, party chief Mustafa Kamal claimed that a lot people were in contact with his party and they are open to accept anyone in their party.
He underlined that PSP was not pressurising any individual to join the party ranks, “they all are doing on their own”. He said he stood on his view from day one and never backtracked on it.
He said PSP will organise a large convention at Nishtar Park on Thursday on the party’s founding day.
Speaking on the occasion, Sindh Assembly member Sheikh said the decision to become part of PSP was taken after long deliberation. “I am being constantly told from London that the mandate is mine,” he claimed.
A number of MQM lawmakers including Iftikhar Alam, Dr Sagheer Ahmed, Bilquis Mukhtar and Ashfaq Mangi have left the MQM for PSP, while PTI Sindh lawmaker Syed Hafeezuddin has also joined Kamal’s party.
