They further claimed that pics of Sardar Ali Gohar Mahar, Muhammad Bux Mahar, Ghous Bux Mahar, PPP leader Faryal Talpur, Suhail Siyal, Tarique Siyal and PPP-Workers Dr. Safdar Abbasi were removed by him against which they lodged complaints against him at Radio Pakistan, Islamabad, but no action has so far been taken against him which is unjust, they added.
