Karachi: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) amir Karachi Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman asked Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to refrain Sindh government from creating hurdles against holding of Local Government polls. He welcomed ECP decision for holding LG election on January 15. Hafiz Naeem said Sindh government to shun it’s anti-democratic behaviour as an empowered local government setup was crucial to resolve burning issues of Karachi.  He demanded of ruling regime in Sindh to empower local government setup in light of Article 140 A of Constitution and in accordance of apex court’s ruling. 

Muttahida Qaumi Movement and PPP have jointly deprived local government setup of administrative and monetary powers. JI leader said two parties were supporting feudal mindset against masses by opposing local government elections in Karachi and other parts of province.  He said that JI has been only party fighting for due rights of Karachi in and outside court. “JI’s mayor would not only represent aspirations of Karachiites but would utilise all available opportunities to mitigate miseries of people of Karachi.”
