Says there was need of national dialogue & electoral reforms to end the prevailing crises


LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Emir Sirajul Haq has said the government policies and actions are the continuation of the PTI regime, having no agenda of public welfare.


In a statement issued from JI Headquarters Mansoorah on Wednesday, Sirajul Haq said the PDM and the PPP had exactly started taking same anti-poor decisions on the basis of those they had been vocal against the PTI rule.


“All the major political parties except the Jamaat-e-Islami are in power now. I challenge them to bring forward any program to put the country on track.”


The fact was that they (ruling parties) had no agenda of public welfare at all, he said, adding their sole objective was to protect self-interests, make billions of rupees and properties through illegal means. The JI, Sirajul Haq said, believed the three parties were now badly exposed before the masses and would no longer be able to befool the people of Pakistan.


He warned the government against testing the patience of the masses. The JI demanded the government take measures to end inflation and eliminate riba from national economy in the upcoming budget, he said, warning that his party would bring the masses at roads if the demands were not met.


Instead of taking austerity measures, controlling non-developmental expenditures and bringing end to the VIP cultures, the rulers rushed to the IMF to get bailout packages, he said. Pakistan, he added, had so far received 23 programs from the global lender but none of them brought any change to the national economy. The corruption, ill-conceived policies, interest-based economy and the two percent ruling elite capturing the resources of the country were the real evils, he said. Pakistan, he added, could not go forward without getting rid of the status quo parties and the corrupt system. Masses, he said, should launch a peaceful democratic struggle for their rights and send the test faces to homes.


Sirajul Haq said there was need of national dialogue and electoral reforms to end the prevailing crises. The political parties should show seriousness and come to the table to find some solution to the problems, he said.
