Anti-poor govt of the PTI will not be provided any chance now: Sirajul Haq
Says JI will march towards Islamabad after holding 100 sit-ins in different cities
LAHORE ( Web News )
Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Emir Sirajul Haq has said the anti-poor government of the PTI will not be provided any chance now, vowing to speed up the sit-in movement in coming days.
Presiding over the meeting of JI Majlis e Aamla at Mansoorah on Wednesday, Sirajul Haq said the JI will march towards Islamabad after holding 100 sit-ins in different cities. “The 101st sit-in of the JI in Islamabad will prove last nail in the coffin of the government.”
The meeting discussed the ongoing political situation, Gwadar and Sindh local government issues. It expressed concern over the government failure to fight the case of Kashmir and showed full solidarity with the Palestine freedom movement.
Sirajul Haq said the history and Pakistani nation will never forget those who deceived the people of Kashmir, adding the incumbent and the former rulers never showed seriousness to the Kashmir cause. He said the PTI made complete surrender before the Modi government on Kashmir. The JI chief demanded the government bring down the prices of food items, petrol and medicines by at least 50 percent. He also called for the removal of the governor of the state bank who was working on IMF agenda. He said the government must take measures to eliminate interest-based economy which was the main reason behind the plight of people.
The meeting decided the JI will contest election under its own flag and electoral symbol. Sirajul Haq said the manifesto of the JI was “corruption free Islamic Pakistan.” He said the three parties (the PTI, the PML-N and the PPP) ruled over country for years but failed to provide any relief to the masses. The JI, he added, was the only option left with the masses now. He said the people should test the JI in the polls to lay foundation of welfare Islamic state. He said the PTI slogan of Madina state proved a failure. The government, he added, could not check the corruption and it failed to control inflation and unemployment.
Majlis e Aamla appealed to the Supreme Court to take action on the JI petition on Panama leaks and Pandora papers.
