KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement's Rabita (Coordnation) Committee was disbanded on Thursday.

The new rabita committee would be formed on Saturday in a general workers' meeting of the party. In the meantime, administrative affairs of the party would be managed by a seven-member committee which had already been formed.

The decision in this respect was made by the rabita committee and was approved by party chief Altaf Hussain, MQM leader Faisal Sabzwari told Dawn.com.

The move comes in the wake of Altaf Hussain’s address to MQM workers on Wednesday during which he said he would purge the party of ‘corrupt and unwanted’ elements and that the cleansing process for that purpose had already begun.

Hussain had made the announcement while talking to members of the MQM coordination committee by phone from London.

Moreover, on May 21, Hussain had dissolved the ‘Karachi Tanzeemi (organising) Committee’, a key party wing, in view of numerous complaints against it.
