A former senior leader of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Dr Farooq Sattar, on Tuesday, termed Mayor Wasim Akhtar’s outburst at yesterday’s farewell press conference ‘crocodile tears’.

Speaking during a programme at a private TV channel, he said the Karachi mayor kept mum over four years of his tenure by operating in collusion (muk mukka) with parties he has now been complaining about.

Farooq Sattar said the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) got Rs4 billion grant from the Sindh government every year for uplift schemes besides funds from the federal government yet the mayor had been griping about lack of funds.

Wasim Akhtar had gotten visibly emotional while addressing the farewell press conference at the KMC head office yesterday, throwing away bundle of letters, he said, he had written to the chief minister, the prime minister and others.

“I wrote several letters to the federal and Sindh governments for resolution of Karachi’s problems, but got no replies”, he said.

“The Sindh government considers Karachi an ATM and it now wants to further divide the city.

Earlier, Farooq Sattar had met Hareem Shah, the famous TikTok celebrity.

Hareem got popular overnight by sharing videos of top Pakistani politicians like Prime Minister Imran Khan’s office and selfies on her TikTok videos.

She had also previously leaked a video conversation with Federal Railway Minister Sheikh Rasheed.
