Mustafa Kamal rails against Sattar as another MQM-P member joins PSP

The same day that Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Farooq Sattar criticised the Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) for poaching his party members, another MQM-P lawmaker jumped ship today.
MQM-P MPA Sumeta Afzal Syed announced joining PSP at a press conference.
She was elected to the Sindh Assembly on a reserved ticket for women.
Addressing the press conference, PSP chief Mustafa Kamal lashed out at Sattar and the recent internal rifts within the MQM-P.
He claimed that the PSP is not behind what has been happening with MQM-P recently.
“Farooq Sattar called minutes before the Senate elections [last month] begging for votes,” Kamal claimed, adding that Sattar also asks PSP to lend supporters for his rallies.
The PSP chief vowed that Sattar, around a year ago, told him he will ‘bluff’ Mahajirs. He also questioned under whose pressure did Sattar contact PSP or attempt to join the party last year.
