Duty doctor Zafarullah verified the form after allegedly receiving Rs 100 from the trader’s employee.

From Nadeem Mushtaq Ramay
BUREWALA: The political tempo is gaining momentum after the completion of the first phase of nominations and scrutiny for the general elections scheduled to be held on May 11.
In NA-167, a tough competition is expected among the PML-N, the PPP, the PTI and Nazir Jatt Group candidates. The PML-N has fielded Chaudhry Nazir Ahmad Arain, while PTI’s Riasat Ali Bhatti, PPP’s Col (retd) Abid Ali Khan and Ayesha Nazir Jatt, daughter of former MNA Nazir Ahmad Jatt, are vying for the tickets. The biradari system will play an important role in the success of the candidates.
The PML-N has the credit of distributing laptops and solar lamps among students, organising the Youth Festival, launching the Metro Bus Service and establishing Danish schools across the province. On the recommendations of Ch Nazir Ahmad Arain, Pir Ghulam Mohyuddin Chishti and other local leaders, former chief minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif had laid the foundation stone of Faisalabad Agricultural University Sub-Campus. Owing to the mega projects, the PML-N will be in a position to muster huge support of voters. However, differences between Ch Nazir Arain and Naseem Shah groups could jeopardy the party’s position. The PML-N has awarded the ticket to Ch Nazir Ahmad Arain, while the Naseem Shah Group tried its best to secure the ticket for Syed Salman Shahid Mehdi, son of former MNA Syed Shahid Mehdi Naseem.
Ch Nazir Ahmad Arain showed better performance in the 2010 by-elections and got 10,000 more votes than PML-N ticket-holder Syed Shahid Mehdi Naseem. The PML-N changed its policy, took advantage of the votes of the Arain biradari which mostly favours Nazir Ahmad Arain and awarded ticket to him. The PML-N will have dim chances of winning the seat if differences were not removed in the estranged groups in the constituency.
The PTI has given the ticket to Riasat Ali Bhatti, a businessman and a social figure, who is a new comer in politics. Bhatti has a big vote bank of his biradari in the area. He set up many medical camps in the urban and rural areas of the constituency and provided free medicines to poor on regular basis. Through his social work, Riasat Ali Bhatti has gained a significant place among the people.
Like the PML-N, the PTI local chapter is also divided into several groups. However, the office-bearers belong to the Riasat Bhatti Group because he had mobilised the workers and strengthened the party in the area. He is being considered a strong candidate and could win the seat if he remained successful in mobilising his voters.
The PPP had won the 2010 by-polls. However, former MNA Ch Asghar Ali Jatt left the party about six months ago and starting utilising the funds in NA-166 (Arifwala). PPP workers had expressed great concern over his decision. Earlier, his uncle Nazir Ahmad Jatt left the PPP and announced to contest the general elections as an independent candidate. Such moves have drastically weakened the party in the area. The PPP is looking for a suitable candidate in the constituency. Col (retd) Rao Abid Ali Khan and Malik Muhammad Iqbal Langrial are vying to get the ticket, while former is being considered a strong contender.
The PPP’s chances of victory are very dim after Ch Nazir Ahmad Jatt’s refusal to accept the ticket. Nazir Jatt had won the seat in 2004 and 2008 on the PML-Q ticket. In 2010, he tendered his resignation on the allegations of the fake degree. Later, he joined the PPP and did not take part in the by-election after a court verdict against him. He fielded his nephew Asghar Ali Jatt to contest against PML-N candidate Syed Shahid Mehdi Naseem and Awami Ittehad Group’s Ch Nazir Ahmad Arain, an independent candidate. Ch Asghar Ali Jatt cashed his uncle’s vote bank and won the by-election by a huge margin.
Nazir Ahmad Jatt has announced to field his daughter Ayesha Nazir Jatt as an independent candidate in place of Asghar Ali Jatt after developing differences with his nephew over corruption charges. Asghar Ali Jatt, fearing a threat of being exposed, transferred all his funds to NA-166 (Arifwala) and started his campaign there. Nazir Ahmad Jatt two wives, two daughters and a nephew are contesting the elections on NA-167, NA-168, NA-169, PP-232 and PP-233. He is running the campaign of his family members and has vowed to bring a revolution by defeating his rival candidates. However, corruption charges against his nephew have damaged his popularity.
