Sukkur Council session adjourned amid uproar

SUKKUR: The session of the District Council Sukkur was adjourned amid uproar by the Nazims of the Awam Dost panel on Saturday.

Reports said as soon as the council session started under the chairmanship of convener Abdullah Ghumro, the Nazims of the Awam Dost panel, led by Nazim UC-5 Yousuf Jagirani, stood up and started shouting slogans against the district Nazim for ignoring UC-5 in development works and other basic amenities.
Later, the Awam Dost members staged a walkout and a sit-in for an hour outside the council, shouting slogans against the district Nazim, after which the convener adjourned the session.
The Awam Dost panel Nazims told newsmen alleged that the district Nazim has resorted to victimisation of the Awam Dost Nazims, and their respective areas were being denied basic amenities.
Demanding immediate removal of the secretary of UC-5, they said UC-5 was in a shambles and heaps of garbage and sewage water were everywhere.
They warned their protest would continue till the resolution of the problems.
