Sattar had announced to quit the party and politics after an hour-long press conference on Thursday. During the press conference, Sattar remarked that he was disappointed in the response he got from his party members following the decision to make a political alliance with Pak Sarzameen Party.MQM-Pakistan chief also came down hard on PSP Founder Mustafa Kamal and spoke against the way Kamal behaved during their joint press conference on Wednesday.
Almost an hour after the announcement, MQM-Pakistan leaders and supporters tried to pacify Sattar and eventually it was his mother who was able to convince him to take the decision back.
In a second press conference, Sattar took back his decision and also highlighted the plight of MQM-Pakistan.
