UPPER DIR: Jamaat-i-Islami chief Sirajul Haq has said that his party wants a stable and strong democracy in the country and will oppose any move to derail it.

He was addressing a public gathering in Wari, Upper Dir, in connection with the election campaign of JI candidate Malik Azam Khan. Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf central additional secretary general Saifullah Niazi also spoke on the occasion. Ex-MPA Malik Behram, Upper Dir district nazim Sahibzada Fasihullah and supporters of JI and PTI were also present on the occasion.

The JI chief said that the PML-N-led federal government should complete its tenure. He praised the National Accountability Bureau’s initiative launched against corrupt elements. He said that accountability process should be expanded to Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

He said that those who had looted the national wealth and transferred it abroad must be sent to jails. Referring to the NAB list, he claimed that 70 per cent of people involved in corruption belonged to Pakistan Peoples Party. He praised former chief justice Jawad S. Khwaja for giving a historical verdict to declare Urdu as an official language.

Saifullah Niazi said that PTI had formed an alliance in PK-93 with JI. Conveying a special message of Imran Khan to the party workers, he asked them to vote for the JI candidate on Sept 15.

Mr Haq said that the voting by women had been declared compulsory by the ECP and the notification of election result could not be issued until women cast vote in the election. He asked the JI activists to give full freedom to women so they could use their constitutional right in the by-election.

Meanwhile, police have devised an elaborate security plan for the by-election in Wari.

District police officer Israruddin Bacha said that 71 polling stations had been declared most sensitive and 18 sensitive in Upper Dir. He said that over 7,000 security personnel would be deployed at these polling stations while mobile teams would also patrol the area. He said that apart from police personnel about 300 Levies men would also be deployed.
