Demo held against Larkana mayor

LARKANA: The residents of Union Committee-12 of Larkana held a protest demonstration at Jinnah Bagh roundabout here on Sunday against the Chairman of UC-12 and Larkana Mayor for their failure to maintain cleanliness and carryout development works in their areas.

The protesters also brought a sheep in the protest, chanted slogans and were holding large placards in their hands. Abid Abbasi, Waheed Chandio, Perveen Chandio, Shafi Mohammad Bhutto, Waheed Sindhi and others while talking to media said that heaps of garbage had not been lifted from their areas since long due to which bad smell had engulfed the entire locality and worst affected were the children who cannot go to schools early morning everyday and womenfolk.

They said they called on UC chairman Aftab Bhutto and Mayor Aslam Shaikh and narrated the woes we are faced with on regular basis but they have taken no action as of today.

They alleged that millions of rupees had been shown as having been spent in the papers by the chairman in connivance with the mayor but ground reality was negating their claims of development because not a single brick had been laid in the entire union committee during their entire tenure.

They demanded of the higher government authorities to take stern action against both local government elected representatives and remove them as they had failed to take care of their voters and supporters. They also demanded of high level inquiry against them.
