Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) received another jolt on Saturday when one of its members announced that he was joining Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), reports 24NewsHD TV channel.
Saleem Bandhani had also remained MQM-P member of Sindh Assembly from Sukkur.
Bandhani announced his decision in the presence of Provincial Minister for Labour Saeed Ghani.
Speaking on the occasion, MQM-P’s renegade said that he would work along with PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to eliminate politics of hatred from Karachi.
He expressed the resolve to make urban areas of Sindh bastions of PPP by trying to resolve issues of these areas through the party leadership.
