KARACHI: Six political parties have demanded removal of the Provincial Election Commissioner, Sono Khan Baloch, accusing him of involved in alleged irregularities in electoral rolls.

These parties have made a written complaint in a letter sent to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC), Justice (retd) Fakhruddin G Ibrahim. The parties include Jamaat-e-Islami, Sunni Tahreek, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazal (JUI-F), JUI-P, and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

A delegation of leaders of these parties called on the CEC and handed over the letter. The delegation comprised Mohammad Hussain Mahenti, Abdul Haleem Ghauri, Hafeezuddin, Qari Muhammad Usman and others. They also demanded to conduct verification of electoral rolls in Karachi under supervision of the Army.

Meanwhile, A delegation of the Jamaat-e-Islami led by the party's Ameer in Sindh, Dr Merajul Huda Siddiqui called on Pagaro, at Raja House. Siddiqui told media persons after the meeting that his party would support Pagaro's party during forthcoming general elections.

Talking to the media persons on the occasion, Pagaro said that presently some five to six persons were ruling in Sindh and they do not wanted to consult with anybody while running the government affairs. He, however, did not mention their names.

Referring to alleged misbehaviour of the PPP ministers with the PML-F female lawmakers during last assembly session, Pagaro said what could they, who have no respect for women, deliver to common people.

Pagaro said that the government should not be afraid of the Opposition parties' public meeting scheduled to be held in Hyderabad. Responding to a question, he said that all those parties would be invited at the gathering, which had remained the part of agitation against the Sindh People's Local Government Act.
