Bahawalpur National Awami Party (BNAP) Chief Nawab Salahuddin Abbasi has urged the people of Bahawalpur to elect honest candidates in the upcoming local body elections so their problems could be resolved at gross-roots level.

He expressed these views while addressing a gathering at bugalow-Al-Saeed Dera Nawab Sahib from Lahore on telephone where more than 1,500 people from four municipal wards of Dera Nawab Sahib and two of Shiekh Roshan were present.

On the occasion, Nawab Salahuddin Abbasi nominated Dera Nawab former union nazim Sahibizada Faizur Rasheed Abbasi and former naib nazim Malik Abdul Mustafa Saeedi as BNAP candidates and asked the people to vote for them.

He informed the participants about his nomination of Sahibzada Faizur Rasheed Abbasi as In-charge for Dera Nawab Sahib wards who with the consultation of Malik Abdul Mustafa Saeedi would select group candidates in both Dera Nawab Sahib and Sheikh Roshan areas.

The BNAP Chief said that neither he had a personal agenda in past and nor in future and his last mission of life was to get the restoration of former provincial status of Bahawalpur for which he had refused to accept public office of Punjab Governor and Acting Punjab Chief Minister in past.

Speaking on the occasion, both Sahibzada Faizur Rasheed Abbasi and Malik Abdul Mustafa Saeedi expressed their full confidence in the leadership of Nawab Salahuddin Abbasi and announced to contest local bodies elections on platform of the BNAP.
