KARACHI---Wearing life jackets and bobbing on
the gentle waves of the Arabian Sea, supporters of
a candidate in Pakistan s upcoming nationwide
election held a waterborne rally to highlight the
challenges faced by their embattled fishing com-
Backers of independent political candidate Haji
Usman Ghani took to the water Friday on a flotilla
of fishing boats. He is contesting May 11 elections
for the Sindh provincial assembly from a constituency
near the southern port of Karachi, Pakistan s largest
city, and many of his prospective voters work in the
fishing industry on the nearby coast.
Dozens of boats filled with his supporters left the
harbour and went into the Arabian Sea with flags
Supporters did not let their cumbersome life jackets
get in the way of the festive atmosphere, and danced
and chanted slogans to show their support for Ghani.
But the candidate had a serious message. Ghani,
who s been a social activist in the area for years,
promised to improve the education system and provide
clean drinking water to his constituency if elected.
"Our children don t get an education. We were
forced to use contaminated water...There are no teach-
ers in schools and colleges of the area. That is why
I had to come forward and contest elections to get
our problems solved. We supported and followed
others for long, but no more. We will solve our prob-
lems ourselves," Ghani said.
Many people who took one of the roughly 50 boats
taking part in the flotilla complained that the gov-
ernment has done little to help the fishing commu-
Fishermen are often caught up in a tit-for-tat war
on the water with Indian authorities who arrest Pak-
istanis after they allegedly cross into Indian territory.
Pakistan does the same. The fishermen in both coun-
tries often languish in jail for months. According to
members of the fishing community around 170 Pak-
istani fishermen are currently being held in India.
"The government has done nothing for the industry
and the fishermen," Ali Mohammad, a supporter of
It s unclear whether Ghani has much of a chance
of winning the seat, which is currently held by a
member of the Pakistan People s Party. The PPP is
one of Pakistan s strongest political parties. It was
the largest party in the ruling coalition of the previous
national government and controls the provincial
assembly as well.
The May 11 vote will mark the first time that a
democratically elected civilian government has finished
a full term and handed over power to another such
government in Pakistan. (AP)
