Hyderabad, Sindh – In a significant political move, Jamiat Ulema Pakistan (JUP) has announced its intention to field candidates in all national and provincial constituencies of Sindh for the upcoming elections. The party has opened applications for interested candidates to obtain party tickets, marking a major step in its political strategy.
According to Jamiat Ulema Pakistan, the decision was made during a meeting chaired by JUP Lower Sindh Convener Pir Syed Shah Singhanvi at the provincial office in Hyderabad. Key participants included Dr. Younis Danish, Nazim Ali Arain, and Pir Saeed. The meeting underscored JUP’s commitment to ensuring fair and transparent elections. The party demanded that the caretaker interim government appoint honest officers to oversee the electoral process, aiming to create a free and fair environment for voters to express their will.
Furthermore, JUP has expressed its determination to play an active role in supporting the Palestinian cause. This includes accelerating the Jihad Al-Aqsa movement and campaigning across Karachi, Hyderabad, and Mirpurkhas divisions. Mufti Ali Nawaz Naqshbandi has been appointed as the convener for the Mirpurkhas division and is expected to contest elections from Tharparkar, Umarkot, and Miththi districts.
The party’s stance extends beyond electoral politics, as it also calls for merit-based employment for the youth of Sindh. This move is seen as an effort to counter the influence of landlords and capitalists in the hiring process and to break the cycle of political oppression.
In addition to political and social advocacy, JUP strongly condemned the current issues of inflation, unemployment, and the significant increase in student fees, demanding immediate action from the Caretaker Chief Minister of Sindh. The party’s multifaceted approach indicates a comprehensive strategy addressing both local and international concerns.
As the elections approach, JUP’s expanded involvement in Sindh’s political landscape signals a dynamic shift in the region’s political dynamics, with implications for both local governance and broader geopolitical issues.
