MAGHFIRAT SHAH[/caption] By Zulfiqar Ahmad ISLAMABAD: District Nazim Maghfirat Shah of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has reportedly geared up efforts in connivance with two provincial ministers of his party to get Deputy Commissioner Chitral Osama Ahmad Waraich transferred. Sources in the district administration told this correspondent that Mr Shah was not happy with the incumbent deputy commissioner over administrative matters. A senior official at the chief minister secretariat in Peshawar said the district nazim had requested Chief Minister Pervez Khattak on three different occasions to transfer the deputy commissioner.
The nazim met the chief minister thrice along with his party ministers and literally begged him to transfer the DC for not cooperating with him, the official added.According to the official, the provincial minister for local government and rural development along with minister for finance Muzaffar Sayed, who belong to Jamaat-i-Islami, are making hectic efforts to remove the DC on the request of their party nazim. The sources said another reason to seek the transfer of the deputy commissioner was that the JI wanted a DC having sympathies with religious political parties. They also said the JI was upset over the transfer of a former DC who fully supported the party during his stay in Chitral. Despite repeated attempts, both the ministers and the nazim could not be reached for their comments.]]>
