ISLAMABAD: Former Test cricketer Sarfaraz Nawaz joined the Muttahida Qaumi Movement on Tuesday.

He announced his decision to quit the Pakistan People’s Party and join the MQM at a press conference also addressed by MQM leaders Farooq Sattar, Babar Ghauri and Raza Haroon.

Sarfaraz Nawaz, who was former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s adviser on sports said, “At present, the PPP is involved in corruption. Its corruption has endangered national institutions. My decision to join the MQM is primarily meant to weed out corruption from the society.”

Nawaz said the MQM is a party of the middle class and it alone can salvage the country and end mismanagement and corruption.

Speaking at the press conference, Sattar said the MQM is a national party and it intends to establish itself in all parts of Punjab. He said the MQM alone can serve the cause of the downtrodden.
