DERA GHAZI KHAN: Following his years-long affiliation and commitment to the PML-N, the party leadership has accommodated MNA Sardar Amjad Farooq Khan Khosa by confirming his son Sardar Abdul Qadir Khan Khosa as the party candidate for the district council chairman slot, The News learnt here.

The Leghari group and the Khosa group have been struggling to get the party ticket for the slot. However, the PML-N leadership awarded ticket to Sardar Abdul Qadir Khosa. Though the Leghari group has accepted the party leadership decision but it is hard for them to digest keeping the prevailing political scenario of the district in view. The Leghari group, however, has been apparently accommodated with two seats of the district council vice-chairman and it has decided to field Sardar Muhammad Ahmad Khan Leghari and Sardar Javed Iqbal Khan Qaisrani for the slots. Javed Iqbal had remained the vice-chairman in the local government system introduced by the then president Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf in 2001.

There are also some premature reports that the PML-N may accommodate Sardar Awais Ahmad Khan Leghari in the federal ministry to settle their reservation, which has not been made public owing to the party discipline. It is surprising that Sardar Amjad Farooq Khan Khosa having one seat of the National Assembly has been promoted as compared to the Leghari group, which has two NA and three provincial assembly seats. Earlier, Sardar Muhammad Amjad Farooq Khan Khosa was once ignored by the PML-N when Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa was the sole authority for the political and administrative affairs of the district in 2008 and onward while Sardar Amjad Khosa was not awarded a PML-N ticket over the alleged grudge as his son Sardar Abdul Qadir Khosa had supported Mehmood Qadir Leghari in the tehsil nazim election against Sardar Dost Muhammad Khan Khosa in 2005. As a result, Sardar Amjad Khosa lost NA-171 election. He, however, won PP-242 election as an independent candidate.
