Ruling parties fight was never for the benefit of country as they all wanted to stay in power by hook or crook: Sirajul Haq

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Emir Sirajul Haq has said the failure of political parties to reach an agreement for electoral reforms has raised concern that many among them will hardly acknowledge the outcome of the future polls.

Ruling parties, he said while addressing the JI workers at Mansoorah on Tuesday, fight was never for the benefit of country as they all wanted to stay in power by hook or crook.

They, Sirajul Haq added, indulged in fight to get feeder of milk from establishment. The ruling elite, he said, never worked for the uplifting of poor educated youth or common man. The US or other western powers had no objection on their rule whether it was in the form of PTI or PDM, he said.

Sirajul Haq said the accountability turned into joke in the country as the powerful who committed corruption of Rs50 million would no longer stand accountable before the NAB. The justice was served only to powerful and denied to poor or weak, he said, adding if one lacked wealth or power, he/she could not knock the door of the court. The poor put in the jails even on minor mistakes, he said.

The JI chief said the former and incumbent rulers were responsible to the all the problems of the country. The PDM and the PTI failed to deliver and exposed before the public, he said. Both sides, he said, were still in power and one expected from them that they should talk about their performance rather misleading the public with false narratives. The youth of the country, he said, should compete the ruling parties’ narrative with the power of truth. The young generation knew the reality and they must take a bold stance on it, telling the common folks that the ruling parties were fraud and responsible to their miseries. He said the JI was struggling against the status quo and corrupt system. The JI Youth leadership convention was the beginning of real change and Islamic revolution in the country, he said.
