Muttahida Quami Movement’s Rabita Committee has demanded that Mirpurkhas and Nawabshah should be granted the status of Municipal corporations like Larkana. Qasimabad should be allowed to remain the part of Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.  It should not be made municipal commitee. This action will be equivalent to breaking the city of Hyderabad. 
They said that the time for filing objections to delimitation should be extended. They added it should be increased from seven days to 14 days. 
In a statement they said, “The introduction of two local bodies systems in Sindh has divided the province along ethnic lines.”
They said that the notification issued by the Sindh government regarding local bodies’ elections is in conflict with the bill pass by the Sindh Assembly. They added that the government has given a date for filing objections regarding the new delimitation of constituencies. However, public has not been informed about this. They have not published any information about the delimitation process in the print and electronic media. How can we file objections without studying contents of the case?  
The Rabita Committee said that the two towns Qasimabad  and Hyderabad are one administratively and geographically for a long time. Qasimabad was a UC of Hyderabad in 1987 Local Bodies’ elections. It was the part of Hyderabad in 2001 and 2005 elections. It would be an injustice to make Qasimabad a municipal committee now. 
The Rabitta Committee demanded that the government should adopt fair and constitutional way for the formation of delimitation of new constituencies, municipal communities and town committees and conduction of local bodies’ elections in Sindh. They should not follow discriminatory policies. Instead they should try to frustrate the policies which divide the people of Sindh.
