Karachi (September 06, 2018): Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Farooq Sattar on Thursday said he is consulting his close friends on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s offer to join the party.

Speaking to the media outside the ECP, Sattar once again said that some PTI leaders have offered him to join the Prime Minister Imran Khan led party.

“I am consulting my close friends over the offer,” he added.“PTI wants me to contest the by-election on NA-247 from Alvi’s seat,” the MQM-P leader further said.

Regarding his petition, Sattar said he has moved the ECP against “extreme electoral expenses”. Some political parties spend millions on their election campaigns which means all candidates are not given a fair playing field, he added.

Sattar had claimed that the PTI had offered him to join the party and contest the by-election on a National Assembly seat — NA-247, Karachi — that fell vacant after the resignation of president-elect Dr Arif Alvi.
