MUZFFARABAD: Sardar Abdul Qayyum Niazi, who was confirmed as the thirteenth leader of Azad Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday, had an affinity for governmental issues from youth yet scarcely had longed for becoming chief in the wake of tying down his second triumph in four races to the area’s Legislative Assembly.
Mr Niazi, one among the 13 offspring of food investigator Fazal Dad from three spouses, was brought into the world in Darra Sher Khan, a town in Battal area.
He challenged his first political race in 1982, at 23 years old, and turned into the most youthful locale councilor in his Poonch area.
His family was related with the All Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference (MC), a long-lasting decision party on this side of the Line of Control. Mr Niazi himself challenged the main political decision to the gathering in 2001 as an autonomous up-and-comer after the MC allowed its pass to another person. He was unable to succeed then, at that point, yet after five years he arose triumphant on a MC ticket from similar voting public and held the clerical billets in Sardar Attique-drove government.
In 2011, the fierce surveying in his voting public saw neighborhood courts and around 16,000 votes burnt because of which his adversary was proclaimed effective who arose “triumphant” again in 2016 get-togethers “percent surveying” was displayed to have been held in profoundly weak regions along the LoC.
All previous five years, Mr Niazi ran from one place to another for invalidation of result and ensuing biometric relating yet without any result. Discontent with his [MC] party for not supporting him in his undertakings for relating, he bid goodbye to it in December 2018 and joined Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf (PTI) “in the wake of being captivated by the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan,” says his long-lasting partner Mazhar Chughtai, a project worker by calling.
Strangely, the new AJK chief has a place with the Dulli sub-position of Mughals and Niazi isn’t his last name however alias. Individuals say he picked this title in the mid 1990s when he was an individual from the area board.
Around then, MC pioneer Sardar Abdul Qayyum Khan was the AJK head. Being the namesake, it would frequently make disarray between their assertions and official orders, and the Poonch organization would here and there execute the region gathering part’s requests confusing them with the orders of the leader.
To settle the issue, the then PM Sardar Abdul Qayyum Khan encouraged Mr Qayyum to append an alternate title in his possession, and accordingly he began utilizing Niazi as his last name.
At a political race rally in Bagh on July 17, when Prime Minister Imran Khan was perusing a rundown of PTI’s selected competitors from Poonch division, he had communicated shock at Mr Niazi’s name, saying: “How did a Niazi arrive? I’m very astonished. However we Niazis have spread all over.”
