The Coordination Committee (Rabita Committee) of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement has been dissolved a day after party chief Altaf Hussain said that cleansing process has begun within the MQM.
The Coordination Committees of Karachi and London, the main decision making body of the MQM, have been dissolved and a seven-member committee has been formed to look-over the party affairs.
Members of the new coordination committee would be elected during a general worker meeting on Saturday.
The decision in this respect was made by the rabita committee and was approved by party chief Altaf Hussain.
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.
Moreover, on May 21, Hussain had dissolved the 'Karachi Tanzeemi (organising) Committee', a key party wing, in view of numerous complaints against it.
