Farooq Sattar plans to challenge Senate elections in ECP

Pakistan People's Party (PPP) won 10 out of 12 vacant seats from Sindh while Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) candidate Muzaffar Shah and MQM-P's Farogh Nasim won the two other seats.

Terming the whole exercise a "scam", Muttahida Qaumi Movement- Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Kamran Tessori on Monday said that at least three billion rupees were "spent" in Sindh during the recently concluded Senate polls, ARY News reported.

He said his party was going through a tough test as it was passing through a transformation phase after separating its self from Altaf Hussain and his group.

Decrying that the party is going through hard times, Sattar also alleged that Mohajirs' vote is being made to divert to Pakistan Muslim League-Functional and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

When his attention was drawn to the recent differences in MQM-Pakistan leadership, Dr. Farooq Sattar admitted that it also proved counterproductive for the party in today's Senate elections.


However, the PSP chief added said that he does not want to take benefit from the current infighting in the MQM-P. He alleged that PPP leadership was involved in horse-trading to strengthen its position in the Senate.

Sources said the party's six MPAs in the Sindh Assembly defied party orders and voted for the Pakistan Peoples Party in Saturday's elections.

PPP has rejected the allegations, asking MQM-P to not place the blame of the infightig among party factions on PPP.

"Why someone's awakened conscience didn't force him to vote for some MQM candidate?", asked Tessori. "We will become very strong party once again", he urged his party workers.
