All is not right in the Jakhrani household as the father of the current Pakistan Peoples Party MNA Aijaz Jakhrani, Babul Khan Jakhrani, claims that his son and nephew are plotting against him.
Babul Khan is a former PPP MNA and also the uncle of Sindh Minister Mumtaz Jakhrani. He believes he has fallen into the political victimisation trap set by Aijaz and Mumtaz.
While speaking at Jacobabad Press Club on Wednesday evening, Babul Khan complained about his son and nephew and said that they were trying to implicate him in fake cases with the help of the deputy commissioner of Jacobabad, Raja Shah Zaman Khuhro.
He believes his son and nephew will try to harm him with help from Khuhro and will go to court to ask for protection.
According to the former MNA, Raj Wah - a feeder from the Guddu Barrage which flows through the city and irrigates more than 4,000 acres of agricultural land - is in danger as elected representatives of the PPP are getting help from the deputy commissioner to shut it down. If they are successful, he said, that the lands will turn barren.
Talking about his son, Babul Khan said that he had been elected as an MNA twice but had nothing to provide the people of the area with potable water. Instead, he said, he got approval to build a cadet college and flyovers. He added that no development project had been completed in the city during the last 10 years.
Babul Khan alleged that the land they had wanted to build the cadet college on is in a dangerous area known for robbery and mugging. He said that they - the deputy commissioner and officials, were trying to purchase government land for the college and planned to sell it to the government again but at an exorbitant rate.
