They criticised the district nazim for his role.

They alleged that Himayatullah Mayar was a criminal and over eight first information reports (FIRs) were registered against him. They added that in 1990, an FIR was registered against Himayatullah Mayar under Section 302 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) and the case was still pending.

They added that in 2005, 2006, 2015 and 2017 FIRs were registered against him and majority of the cases were pending.
