RAHIM YAR KHAN-Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI) will start a protest demonstrations and sit-ins from next week against the ruling party parliamentarians’ highhandedness and power abuse.

The campaign is aimed to highlight their illegal land grabbing, involvement in the government offices and false FIRs, said PTI former district president Rana Raheel Ahmed Khan in a press conference on Thursday.

Accompanied by PTI leaders Munir Salim, Rana Ubaid, Shumaila Hashmi, Moon Chohan and Ammar Nazir Baloch at PTI district secretariat, Raheel alleged that PML-N MPA Umar Jaffar had possessed a six-acre state land in Pir Shaheedan area with connivance of DSP police Saddr circle.

When he raised this issue DSP threatened him on whom he sent applications to IG police, RPO Bahawalpur and DPO RYK. But the SP investigation is not taking the matter serious and supporting the politicians and his subordinates, he alleged.

He said that the district administration is arranging meetings of price control committees on monthly basis but only people of district Rahim Yar Khan in the province were paying Rs2.5 more than official rate of petrol.

He further said that after the proofs of big corruption in mega sewerage project of city, the Rs750 million project of Abbasia flyover is also in the hands of corrupt political mafia and its substandard construction work is a question mark on the authorities concerned.
