Farooq Sattar announces he will contest elections from three constituencies

Mutahidda Quami Movement–Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Farooq Sattar on Saturday announced he will be contesting the upcoming election from three constituencies.
“I am submitting my nomination papers for the upcoming general election from NA-241, NA-245 and NA-247,” Sattar said while speaking to the media after submitting his nomination papers from NA-241 (Korangi).
Sattar lamented that MQM-P is not being given “political freedom”.
“A hundred and sixty-five missing persons have still not been recovered,” he said.
The MQM-P leader also demanded that the party offices be re-opened.
Sattar further upheld, “The practice of cornering us needs to end.”
“It was fine till minus-one formula but if we suspect a minus-MQM formula then we can go to the extent of taking any decision,” he asserted.
He further clarified, “I never said I would boycott elections.”
Criticising the recently sworn-in interim set-up for Sindh, Sattar alleged that most cabinet members are Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) supporters.
“The use of development funds and injustice in delimitation of constituencies is pre-electoral rigging,” he further alleged.
