KARACHI: Mustafa Kamal has pulled another Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader into his newly formed Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP).
“Iftikhar Akbar Randhawa, who has just arrived from Australia, has joined us and we welcome him in our party,” Kamal told reporters during a press conference at his Karachi residence.
Randhawa is a former member of the MQM Rabita Committee.
The development comes just a day after MQM lawmaker from Karachi’s PS-127 constituency, Ashfaq Mangi, joined the PSP along with dozens of other party members and zonal in-charges from several districts of rural Sindh.
Another MQM MPA joins Mustafa Kamal's party
Mangi was elected from Sindh Assembly’s PS-127 constituency in the 2013 general elections, and is also a former member of the party’s Rabita Committee.
The PSP was formed by the former Karachi mayor upon returning to Pakistan from self-imposed exile on March 3. Immediately after his return to the country, Kamal had launched a blistering attack on MQM chief Altaf Hussain and challenged the ‘iron grip’ of the MQM on the city.
Several MQM leaders including, Anis Kaimkhani, Raza Haroon, Anis Ahmed Advocate, Waseem Aftab, Bilquis Mukhtar, Dr Sagheer Ahmed, and a large number of activists have joined PSP since Kamal’s return.
