Ex-MPA from upper Chitral joining JUI-F

BOONI, Dec 1: Former Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) Haji Ghulam Muhammad has said he would soon formally announce his decision to join the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F). ghulamGhulam Muhammad was elected to the KP assembly in the 2013 elections from PK-90 upper Chitral on the ticket of All-Pakistan Muslim League (APML) of retired Gen Pervez Musharraf and later unseated in the recounting of votes in some of the polling stations on the petition of PPP’s Sardar Hussain. Talking to ChitralToday on phone from Peshawar on Monday, the former MPA said that he had discussed his decision with the JUI leaders and was joining the party led by Maulana Fazlur Rehman without any condition. He said he would soon announce his decision to join the JUI-F in a gathering in Booni. Mr Ghualam Muhammad also strongly criticized his archrival and MPA Sardar Hussain for his failure to deliver and for claiming credit for all the projects initiated by him. He said that he had got approved funds for the sanitation project of Booni but now Sardar Hussain has not only hijacked the project in his own name but was also utilizing the funds to construct a road to his own house in Booni. He said he had also got approved the upgradation of the tehsil headquarters hospital Booni but now the sitting MPA was claiming credit for this project too. Ghulam Muhammad said that he had also included the construction of the Booni bridge in the non-annual development plan after the provincial government ran short of funds. He said that there was no corruption in the sanitation project but even then he would welcome the report of the one-man commission formed to probe the matter. He said that due to the inability of Sardar Hussain, 300 million rupees sanctioned for different development projects in Booni were returned.]]>
