LAHORE ( Web News )
Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Emir Sirajul Haq has rejected the mini-budget and called a meeting of the central leadership at Mansoora today (Saturday) to discuss the prevailing situation of the country.
“We will not sit silent on anti-people policies of the government,” Sirajul Haq said in a statement issued from here on Friday.
Sirajul Haq reached Lahore at night from his home-town Samarbagh (Dir Lower) where he inaugurated a mosque and seminary. He said the economy was on the verge of collapse due to ill-planning of the PTI. He said the government had made full surrender before the IMF for one billion dollars. The government, he believed, would become ready to impose taxes on air and light if the international monetary fund gave direction for it. He said the trade deficit had touched $25 billion in first six months of the current fiscal years. The rulers, he said, were planning to further increase electricity and gas tariff. He said people could not afford meal for two times as the earning opportunities had vanished. Millions of youth were jobless and the promise of the prime minister to create jobs proved life, he added.
Holding the former and present government equally responsible for the plight of the masses, Sirajul Haq said the feudal lords and corrupt capitalists were part of the three parties and they were least bothered about the miseries of common man. He said the ruling elite made billions of rupees by looting the country’s resources and stashed their money in shell companies. Their (rulers) children were living in palaces but on the other side millions of poor kids were out of schools due to hunger and poverty. He said the government never paid attention to strengthen the system. He said the JI was not against any party or individual but it was fighting for changing the corrupt system. He said the people should vote for the JI to put the country on track.
