NA-174 Rajanpur i (Jampur Tehsil)
MNA: Jaffer Khan Laghari
Current Political Position
Sardar Mohammad Jaffar Khan Leghari of the NA won this seat with margin of 27,000 votes in 2002, while the PML-N’s Gorish Sardar Gurchani remained second.
In 2008, Leghari contested on PML-Q ticket against Khwaja Kalimuddin Koreja of the PPP. Despite his affiliation with the PML-Q, Sardar Nasrullah Khan Dreshak joined the race an independent candidate but lost to Sardar Jaffer Khan Laghari with margin of 10K votes.
Current situation is quite confusing as both seats of Rajan Pur do not contain any party votes. All dependent upon Electables and Sardars. Drehak Group seems very string this time but they did not decided yet to join any party. Jaffer Laghari will be most probable candidate of PPP+PML-Q alliance and this alliance could win this seat easily. PML-N might come up with Khawaja Kaleem Ud Din Koreja ex-PPP candidate or PML-N’s Provinical assembly member Sher Ali Khan Gorchani’s father, Pervaiz Iqbal Gorchani. Mind it that in 2008 Laghari, Mazari alliance defeated Dreshaks in with help of Gorchanis.
In coming elections it will be tough to guess anything before finalization of local alliances and party tickets. There were rumors that Nasarullah Dreshak is joining PTI but he hasn’t confirmed it yet. Historically it is a pet Laghari seat, and Lagharis are winning this seat from 1988. Farooq Laghari have been elected from here for three times. So for safe side PML-Q.
Update: Jaffer Laghari defected to PML-N and with help of Jaffer Laghari, PML-N can pocket this seat.
