ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday submitted a petition with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) seeking action against Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, media reported.
The petition was submitted by the PTI lawmaker Haleem Adil Sheikh in which he requested ECP to take action against the PPP leader for using state machinery in the campaign for the upcoming by-polls in Ghotki’s NA-205 constituency.
“CM Sindh [Murad Ali Shah] has met Saifullah Dharejo from Ghotki who later announced to fully support PPP besides joining the political party,” said a petition submitted by Haleem Adil.
“Election Commission must take notice of this electoral irregularity,” said the legislator.
It is pertinent to mention here that the ECP had last week issued polling schedule for NA-205-Ghotki-II.
The polling on the seat which fell vacant due to the death of Ali Muhammad Mahar, the former federal minister, will be held on July 18.
