MQM Challenges Formation of DMC Keamari in SHC

KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) has challenged formation of the DMC Keamari by the Sindh government in Sindh High Court.

Four MQM legislators from Karachi’s District West filed a constitutional petition in the high court against formation of DMC Keamari.

“DMC Keamari has been constituted on political grounds and it contravenes sub-clause 3 and 4 of the Sindh Local Government Act (SLGA) clause VIII,” the MQM petition said.

The government notification about the DMC Keamari has been unlawful as an early petition challenging formation of Keamari District was already under the hearing of the high court, petition said.

The government has issued notification for the Keamari district and distribution of assets despite these facts, petition further argued.

“The People’s Party government’s decision to this effect has been malicious and based on ill-intention,” the petition said.
