The procession led by councillors Moosa Mahar, Zahid Hussain Lakho, Ms Nazeeran Bhutto and Ms Nazeeran Magsi also demonstrated outside the local press club.They accused UC Nazim Mohammed Ali Hakro of neglecting their areas in earmarking development funds and withholding their salaries for five months.They threatened to table a no-confidence motion against the nazim if he continued what they called meting out discriminatory treatment against them.

The UC-3 Nazim Mohammed Ali Hakor, Naib Nazim Zakir Hussain Lakho and number of men and women councillors dismissed the allegations in a demonstration outside the press club.He told the journalists that the UC had received nothing for carrying out development in the area and added that the councillors’ salary checks were at the relevant office.Instead of collecting their checks they were trying to blackmail him, he said.
