Extending his supports to the confirmation of voters’ lists and delimitation Karachi, Amir Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) Maulana Fazal Rahman has said that all parties in Karachi are unanimously for new demarcation of constituencies and door to door confirmation of voter lists in Karachi.
He observed, “Only one party is opposing the demarcation of constituencies in Karachi but the process should not be stopped for the cause of a single party. Thousands of people have been deprived of votes in Karachi due to change of permanent address. They are living in Karachi for decades and they have the right to cast their vote in Karachi.”
The JUI-F chief said it was a good decision of Supreme Court to confirm voter lists by going door to door saying that the process should be completed in the given time.
He said that chief election commissioner was optimistic to complete the process of demarcation and confirmation voter lists with the help of army is positive thing.
He added, “We don’t want that a new Pandora box should be opened for demarcation of constituencies in the whole country. It should be confined to Karachi as Supreme Court has already ordered for this in Karachi.”
Commenting about situation in Balochistan, JUI chief said Supreme Court had held federal agencies responsible in its decision regarding law and order situation in Balochistan but it was beyond understanding as to why the punishment was being given to the provincial government.
Replying to a query about the Kalabagh dam, he said the decision was not feasible and it seems the decision had given a chance to a single party to once again use the issue as election slogan.
About MMA’s restoration, he said heads of the five parties of MMA will meet in the first week of January to discuss the election strategy. He said the decision about inviting Jamat-e-Islami for the meeting will be taken on MMA’s platform.
