LAHORE: Instead of holding polls in two provinces, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan Emir Sirajul Haq has suggested the general elections throughout the country for which all the political forces should initiate dialogue to develop a consensus.

“Caretaker setup should be formed at centre and provinces and elections should be held in entire country at the same time,” Sirajul Haq said while presiding over a meeting of central working committee (Majlise Aamla) at Mansoorah on Monday.

The meeting attended by JI leaders Liaqat Baloch, Ameerul Azim, Engineer Hafiz Naeemur Rahman and others discussed national political and economic situation and held the PDM, the PPP and the PTI equally responsible for the prevailing crises. It demanded transparent enquiry into the electricity breakdown which kept the millions of people without electricity for hours. The meeting also called for implementation of Federal Shariat Court decision regarding interest-free economy. The JI leaders asked the government to release the detained leaders and workers of Gawadar Rights Movement, saying the rulers should listen to the people of Balochistan instead of pushing them to the wall.

Sirajul Haq expressed satisfaction over the success of the JI in Karachi local government elections, reiterating the resolve that the JI will give mayor to the metropolitan. He said the JI will bring stability and prosperity in Karachi by taking all stakeholders on board. He thanked the people for giving mandate to the JI and congratulated the Karachi JI chapter for success.

Sirajul Haq said since all the ruling parties failed to bring the country out of crises and exposed badly, the JI was the only option left with the masses. If voted to power, he said, the JI will transform Pakistan into welfare Islamic state. He said success of the JI in Karachi and Gwadar was ray of hope for entire country.
