LAHORE: Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Senator Sirajul Haq has said that so-called mainstream political parties’ rhetoric about democratic values and claim that power lies with the people are only eyewash. Sirajul Haq said that who is ruling the country, adding that OGRA, NEPRA and PEMRA are ruling the country.

Talking to reporters after addressing a training workshop of JI Youth at Mansoora on Sunday, he added that it was a proven fact that epicenter of real power and authority to issue “NRO” in Pakistan was “Rawalpindi.”

“The prime minister’s claim about not entering into NRO-like deal with any political parties doesn’t matter at all.” The JI Ameer said the support of main opposition parties to the government proposed bill proved that they were all looking towards the same direction when it came to the matter of their own interest. He said the political parties contested election only to enjoy power and they were least worried about problems of the masses.

Senator Sirajul Haq, who recently made a five-day visit to the different areas of Balochistan, expressed regret over the plight of the masses in the biggest province. He said majority of residents of Balochistan was living without gas, electricity and basic health facilities. The condition of a common man in Sindh where a political party was enjoying power for decades was even miserable, he added.

The JI chief lamented that PTI government which made tall claims to introduce reforms in governance and end corruption and nepotism not only failed to bring any change but it proved itself even worst from the previous regimes. The prime minister statement that a person could only get relief in grave actually reflected his helplessness, said the senator. The present regime, he said, completely destroyed the economy and snatched every mean of earning from poor and middle class. It burdened masses with record debt and virtually handed over the government to the IMF, he added.

Senator Sirajul Haq said the present rulers were not only making flawed domestic policies but they abandoned the Kashmir cause. Referring to the statement of the Indian army chief, he said he was afraid that New Delhi would not only talk about Muzaffarabad but it would make claim on Islamabad in future if the government continued its same weak stance on Kashmir.

He said the people were showing frustration over the ‘circus’ of the political parties in the country and they left with no option but to choose honest and dedicated leadership to resolve their problems and turn Pakistan an Islamic welfare state. He said JI could bring the real change in the country if voted to power. Sirajul Haq said that he believes the day will come when Pakistan will become prosperous and Islamic Pakistan. He said that the solution of the peoples problems lies in Islamic system, adding that the solution of the problems of people lies with JI, adding that JI is Islamic, democratic and progressive party.

He said that it is dilemma that the people vote for tyrants and then ask the justice has not been established, adding that the people vote for thieves and then ask the corruption has not ended. He said that the people vote for blind and then say we did not reach at destination. Sirajul Haq said that there is no difference between the policies of past governments and current government, adding that previous governments had reached debts of country at Rs 31000 billion but current government turned the debt into Rs 41000 billion while jumping from Rs 31000 billion. He said that the announcement of these people was to commit suicide instead of approaching IMF and World Bank.

He said that the government passing lives in air condition and heater halls did nothing. He said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) breath under the same umbrella.
