JI, PTI prepare joint strategy related to LG polls in Karachi



Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leadership have prepared a joint strategy related to the results of the elections.

According to the details, JI and PTI leadership have reportedly made contact ahead of the local body elections in remaining UCs of Karachi. In a telephone conversation, JI’s Hafiz Naeemur Rehman and PTI’s Aftab Siddiqui agreed to work together to ensure free and fair polls and have prepared a joint strategy related to the results of the elections.

Sources revealed that the workers from both parties will monitor the polling process and post-polling activities to ensure fair elections and results.

It is worth mentioning here that Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan Ameer Sirajul Haq has threatened to besiege the Sindh Chief Minister (CM) House and the offices of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) if JI’s mandate was not accepted after the Karachi local government (LG) polls.

While addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Sirajul Haq said that JI workers are not cowards and that Karachi will get JI’s mayor in the coming days.

He said that he has sent a message to Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari to resolve the issues related to the irregularities in the Karachi LG polls by Friday, otherwise, he should not complain about anything. Sirajul Haq said that JI wants peace and brotherhood in Karachi. “Our mayor will work for the betterment of the metropolis. We would besiege CM House and ECP offices to get our rights.”
