A delegation of the grand jirga met Pir Karam Ali Shah on sunday at his residence in Chatorkhand, Ishkomen. According to sources, no major break through was made in the meeting.

The delegation will meet Pir Karam Ali Shah again tommorrow at his residence to persuade him to help normalize tense situation in Ghizer district after riots erupted at Sher Qilla poling station.

A delegation of Ismaili Regional Council, Ghizer met Nawaz Khan Naji today in Sher Qila. The delegation requested Naji to adopt peaceful course of action in resolving the political turmoil in the district, instead of resorting to violent protests.

Requests made by the delegation were rejected straight away by Nawaz Khan Naji.

“The delegation was told that our protest is peaceful and will continue untill the arrest of main accused and re-polling at Sher Qilla polling stations”, the information secretary of BNF- Ghizar, Ali Madad said.

“We demand the arrest of Pir Karam Ali Shah and Ghulam Muhammad along with the other accused and, of course, re-polling at four polling stations in Sher Qilla”, Nawaz Khan Naji said while talking to the this scribe on phone.

He further said, ”We will wait for two more days as requested by the grand jirga. After two days if our demands are not met, we will be compelled to protest from where they were paused”.

    When The ppp seen their defeat in recent election they created panic, unrest and disturbance during election and killed an innocent activist of BNF named Zubair.

    We request the re-election through Human Rights Commission in 4 points as indicated BNF leader and the culprits would not be allowed in election contest.

    We request to people of Sherqila along with the BNF leader to tackle this situation wisely instead of emotional way and not surrender till the culprits not been punished.
