JI Majlise Shura says incompetence & inability of Imran Khan’s govt has pushed the country to multiple crises
LAHORE, Feb 26 (SABAH): The Jamaat-e-Islami Majlise Shura (Central Executive Council) has said the government should go home if it could not fix the economy and improve the governance.
“The incompetence and inability of Imran Khan’s government has pushed the country to multiple crises. The prime minister and his team should go home and pave the way for new elections if they unable to provide relief to the masses,” stated a resolution unanimously adopted by the JI Shura during its second day session on Saturday.
The JI’s top consultatory body is meeting at Mansoorah for three days to discuss the prevailing political and economic situation. The JI leaders are also discussing the party’s preparation for elections and organizational matters during the ongoing meeting.
JI Emir Sirajul Haq will announce the future strategy after the end of the Shura session today (Sunday).
The resolution stated the PTI had not failed to improve economy, it also could not control corruption, the top agenda of the government announced by Prime Minister Imran Khan. The country further dropped on corruption index during the PTI rule as per the reports of Transparency International.
The resolution said the PTI made a full surrender before the IMF, the World Bank and the FATF dictations and it was trying to sell the country to international lending agencies on installments. The State Bank Amendment Ordinance, it said, was the surrender document as the government would have no control on state institution dealing with national economy.
The leaders of the JI said the inflation and corruption were the major problems of Pakistan. The government, they said, announced major increases in fuel prices despite reduction in its rates at international market. The government increased medicine prices 14 times and food prices went up multiple times during last three and half years. The corruption went rampant and mafias minted billions of rupees by creating artificial shortages of wheat, sugar and petrol during PTI rule, the resolution stated, adding the government desperately failed to act against the corrupt people involved in scandals.
The JI vowed to continue sit-in movement and demanded the government bring down fuel and food items prices. It called for taking measure to eliminate interest-based economy. The JI demanded government to address the farmers’ demands and increase the salaries of government employees. The JI Shura vowed to transform country into Islamic welfare state through peaceful democratic mass movement.
