ISLAMABAD: Acting Emir Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Liaqat Baloch has demanded the government lift ban on student union and address the issue of unemployment affecting over 75 percent country’s youth.

Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, Liaqat Baloch announced the JI Youth would launch peaceful long-march on Islamabad on November 28 against joblessness and anti-youth policies of the rulers. Educated but jobless people from all over the country were participating in the march, he said, adding the sit-in would be staged at federal capital’s D-chowk and demand the prime minister provide job to the protestors. Reminding the premier his promise to create 10 million jobs, Baloch said the PTI government rather snatched livelihood sources from the millions of people in three years.

Liaqat Baloch said a large number of young people supported the PTI in election with the hope that its government would address their issues. But, he added, the prime minister completely ignored the youth after coming into power, following the track of the former governments. The JI, he said, had decided to unite the youth and pump a spirit of hope in their hearts as majority of them became desperate and hopeless due to rulers’ attitude.

Liaqat Baloch said the PTI kept the status quo intact and paid no heed to the miseries of the masses. Corruption, bad-governance, unemployment, inflation ruined the life of common man as the IMF had virtually taken over the economy, he said.

The JI acting chief appealed to the people to reject status quo parties and support the JI cause to transform Pakistan into a welfare state. He also appealed to the media to support youth in getting their rights.

JI Punjab northern chapter Emir Dr. Tariq Saleem, JI Youth President Zubair Gondal and JI Islamabad chapter Chief Nasrullah Randhawa were with him during the presser.
