PTI plans to move IHC for removal of Mayor Islamabad

ISLAMABAD, Sep 15 (APP):The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) leadership in the Federal Capital is planning to approach the Islamabad High Court (IHC) for removal of Mayor Islamabad Sheikh Anser Aziz as he has failed to resolve the civic issues.

Addressing a press conference here, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Capital Development Authority (CDA) Ali Nawaz Awan said he along with other National Assembly members from Islamabad Raja Khurram Shehzad Nawaz and Asad Umar would file a constitutional petition in the IHC if Sheikh Anser Aziz did not quit the mayorship voluntarily.

β€œWe will request the court to transfer the affairs of Metropolitan Corporation of Islamabad (MCI) to the Climate Change Ministry or the CDA as the mayor and his team have turned the city into a ‘kachra kundi’ (garbage dumping site),” he said while citing the example of Islamabad Zoo, whose inmates (animals) were dying because of the negligence of MCI officials.

He said they were also considering other legal options, including moving a no-confidence move against the mayor.
