PML-N may lose former MPA in Hazara


March 30, 2015

ABBOTTABAD: Another Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former Member Provincial Assembly from Hazara division, Inayatullah Khan Jadoon is likely to quit the party, family sources told The News.
Inayatullah Jadoon, who remained MPA in 2008-2013 and is the son of late chief minister Iqbal Khan Jadoon, lost the election in May 2013 to Mushtaq Ahmed Ghani, the incumbent provincial minister for information.
Sources in his family told this correspondent that Inayatullah Jadoon was annoyed due to neglect of his constituency, PK-44 Abbottabad, by the PML-N-led federal government. They said he had conveyed his complaints to the party leadership, particularly the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Sardar Mahtab Ahmed Khan, but to no avail. They said that after becoming the governor, Sardar Mahtab had ignored his hometown.
The sources in the Jadoon family said a grand jirga would be held in the second week of April to take decisions about participation in the forthcoming Cantonment Board Abbottabad and local government elections. They said decision would also be taken about the future political role to be played by Inayatullah Jadoon.
When contacted, Inayatullah Jadoon confirmed that he was facing pressure from his tribe as his constituency has been badly ignored. “I have conveyed my reservations to the party bosses in Peshawar and Islamabad and am waiting for their decision,” he added.
However, he insisted that he would not leave the party and continue to work as a member. His close aides, on the other hand, said that his differences with the party leadership had widened and he did not attend the workers convention of the party recently held in Peshawar to mark his protest.
Political observers believe that if PML-N leadership does not take the matter seriously, it will be another jolt to the party in Hazara after resignation of MPA Wajeehuzaman. This could also affect the performance of PML-N in the forthcoming local government elections.
