GHOTKI: Political scenario of district Ghotki takes another turn on Wednesday when leadership of Pakistan Peoples Party decided that Sardar Ali Gohar Mahar would be the party candidate on NA-200 while the ticket earlier issued to Khalid Ahmed Lund has been withdrawn.
Former Chief Minister Sindh Sardar Ali Muhammad Mahar told APP that Faryal Talpur, Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Syed Khursheed Shah, Islamuddin Shaikh and other leadership has favored Ali Gohar Mahar as a party candidate from NA-200.
He told that violation of party discipline is the main reason that provoked the decision against Khalid Ahmed Lund as he was directed by party leadership to convince his cousin and MPL F candidate Babar Khan Lund to withdraw his candidature from PS-8.
In violation of party leaderships directions Khalid Lund pursued the hearing on objections against Raja Khan Mahar at election tribunal and got his nomination rejected while Mahar Group did not pursued the appeals filed against Sardar Lund, he added.
Sardar Ali Ahmed Mahar said that now he is the candidate of PPPP for NA-201 and Sardar Ali Gohar Mahar will contest the election from NA-200.
Supporters of Mahar group and PPP workers, after receiving the news, held rallies at Ghotki, Obaro, Mirpur Mathelo, Dahraki and other towns of the district in favor of the decision and distributed sweets.
