KARACHI: Two more leaders of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) hitched a ride on Mustafa Kamal’s political bandwagon on Saturday. Saif Yar Khan and Attaullah, members of MQM Rabita Committee joined Kamal a day before the grand rally of Pak Sarzameen Party. Speaking to the media at a news conference held at Bagh-e-Jinnah, Khan said that he only suffered losses by staying with the MQM. He said that MQM workers living with the exiled leader Altaf Hussain were treated like personal attendants. “Altaf even decides what they should have for dinner.” Khan said that he had been with the party for the last 30 years, “I did not get any call from any number, but decided to join Kamal myself.” Welcoming the dissidents, the ex-mayor of Karachi noted that a month has passed since he officially formed his party.
