MQM workers reportedly beat up some members of the party Rabita Committee on Sunday following a telephonic address by Altaf Hussain, in which he said the Rabita Committee members considered him a “machine” that delivered addresses and did not keep him informed about the ground realities.
Following the speech, party workers got infuriated and asked media personnel to turn off the cameras.
Afterwards, the workers reportedly took some members of the Rabita Committee to task, even beating some of them up.
Earlier in his speech, Altaf said he had come to know of his value, as his “workers did not listen to me”.
He said unknown entities were leveling baseless allegations against him, but his party workers were only listening to the same.
The MQM chief said the media was projecting unimportant people and portraying them as heroes, but he knew well the character of these “heroes”.
“Still, I kept quiet and did not expose them,” Altaf added.
He said he would file a defamation case against PTI chief Imran Khan, which would prove what was true and what was not.
