Being upset by the sequence of events in the last few days, MQM chief Altaf Hussain on Sunday referred to Imran and said the one who does not have any character is being portrayed as a hero.

In a telephonic address to his party’s coordination committee, Altaf started crying and said that his own leaders in the city ofKarachido not appear to be taking him seriously, let alone party workers.

He also apologized to party workers for the local leaders letting them down. Later, the coordination committee apologized to the party chief.

Separately, MQM expressed strong reaction to Imran Khan’s allegations against Altaf Hussain over the killing of his party leader Zehra Hussain.

Addressing a press conference on Sunday, MQM leader Dr Farooq Sattar condemned the brutal murder of PTI vice president ofKarachi, and said that Imran Khan has shown his immaturity by blaming the MQM supremo before even preliminary investigation.

Sattar said that the MQM would sue the PTI chief for defamation and would file a case under article 62-63 over the Sita White case. The MQM has announced they will hold protests across the country and abroad against the statement made by Imran Khan.

Imran Khan had said that he held the MQM leader directly responsible for the killing of PTI Sindh Vice President Zehra Hussain.

The MQM has rejected the allegations and have condemned the PTI chief for making the accusations.

Farooq Sattar said that making allegations against his party chief without any evidence or proof was highly irresponsible. He said that the protests against the PTI chief’s statement will be held in a peaceful manner.

During the press conference, Farooq Sattar said that the low turnout in re-polling of NA-250 proves that the people have rejected the process. He said that the residents of Defence have shown their love for Altaf Hussain by rejecting the polling process in NA-250.
