Electoral alliance with PPP declares to end: JUI-F BADIN: The Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Sindh general secretary Maulana Rashid Mehmood Soomro has said the JUI-F is no more in an electoral alliance with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) for upcoming local government (LG) election in the province.
The Sindh government and PPP had miserably failed to bring to justice the culprits and their facilitators involved in the assassination of the party’s provincial chief Dr Khalid Mehmood Soomro, he said.
The Maulana said at a press conference at Madressah Badrul Uloom here on Wednesday that JUI-F would ally with any party against PPP candidates. Although neither Dr Zulfiqar Mirza nor any other party had finalised seat adjustment with JUI-F but the party had decided that it would now enter into alliance only with anti-PPP parties, he said.
“I had three meetings with former president Asif Ali Zardari and Faryal Talpur and two meetings with chief minister and PPP leadership in which I presented them 11-point demands as a prerequisite for an electoral alliance which included bringing to justice all suspects in Dr Soomro murder case.
He said that not only Sharjeel Inam Memon but many other close aides of Zardari and Faryal Talpur would soon become approvers. People of Sindh had got fed up with nationalist parties and their leaders and they had no future, he added.
The Maulana rejected reports of differences among JUI-F leaders and said the party was united as ever under the leadership of Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
