Journalists elect new office-bearers.
RATODERO -- Larkana Union of Journalists in a meeting on Saturday unanimously nominated its new office-bearers which include Murteza Kalhoro as President, Ayaz Saryo & Naveed Larik as Vice Presidents, Tariq Durrani as General Secretary, Ihsan Junejo and Rashid Abro as Joint Secretaries, Javed Shah as Treasurer and Salamat Abro as Press Secretary.
The meeting also condemned the cold attitude of the government towards the investigation of alleged murder of senior journalist Shan Dahar in his hometown Badah on new year night in firing. The meeting further said that the inquiry committee formed by DIGP and SSP Larkana has so far failed to produce any fruitful results because accused have not so far been arrested and demanded immediate arrest of the killers involved in the criminal act.
The meeting appealed to Prime Minister, Chief Justice, Sindh Chief Minister and IG Police to immediately intervene to end unrest among them.
The Journalists demanded stern action against the negligence of casualty duty doctors of Chandka Medical College Hospital, Larkana, who failed to provide proper treatment to the injured journalist and warned that if their demands are not accepted within three days, they will resort to large scale protests on the LUJ platform.
The new body also reposed confidence in the leadership of PFUJ President Afzal Butt and Khursheed Abbasi and further urged the journalists of Larkana district to attend PFUJ convention being held in Sukkur today.
