Delimitations in Keamari town dismissed

Karachi: Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Humayun Khan on Thursday categorically rejected unjustified new delimitation of Keamari town by the provincial government to stand victorious in upcoming local body’s election in Sindh.

He expressed these views while addressing an emergency press conference at Karachi Press Club (KPC). The representatives of ANP Sarfaraz Jadoon, Qazi Faakhir ul Hassan of JUI-F, Shah Nawaz Jadoon of PTI, Raja Khan, Maulana Bilal, Ex-Nazims and Councillors of Keamari Town were also present on this occasion.

Humayun Khan said people of Keamari Town would not accept the possible merger of town into Lyari District as town has its own historical identity and importance in the country. He said town is the part of district west, but provincial authorities are trying to merge it in district south for political gains.

He said, “He was not against the creation of new districts in province to facilitate the masses, but it should not be formed to get political strength in area rather than resolving public issues.” He said several Union Councils (UCs) of Keamari town were unjustifiably linked to other towns and remote area without any logic which was highly condemnable act.

He said all the local representatives of political parties had registered their objections about unjustified delimitation in town at Commissioner Karachi office. He said they would not accept unjustified delimitation in Keamari town and would record our protest at every platform”. He said all the political parties of district west would approach apex court against dubious delimitation.

He demanded of the Chief Election Commissioner Sindh to take notice of unjustified delimitation in town and hold delimitation under his supervision at district level in Karachi for provision of basic facilities to general public.

All the local representatives of political parties of Keamari town present in the press conference rejected the delimitation in town for political gains by provincial government.
