PM should tell people about his govt performance instead of unleashing verbal attacks on opponents: JI


Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Siraj ul Haq has asked the prime minister to tell the people his government performance instead of unleashing verbal attacks on political opponents.
The language being used by the government and main opposition side, he said, could not be allowed in any civilized society.
Talking to members of IslamiJamiatTalbaMajlise Shura at Mansoorah on Saturday, he also demanded the government lift ban on student unions. He said the PTI government destroyed the education sector along with other sectors in three and half years. He said the PTI failed to provide equal education system to the country. The door of education, he said, was almost closed for poor children due to massive increase in fee and increase in poverty ratio. The past governments, he said, were equally responsible to the plight of masses.
JI naib emir Rashid Naseem and IJT Nazim-e-Aaala Shakeel Ahmed were also present on occasion.
Sirajul Haq said the prime minister had openly violated the Election Commission rules by holding a public meeting in Lower Dir amid the local government elections in KPK. The prime minister, he said, on one side cited examples of rule of law in the west but on the other side he (PM) himself was violating the country’s constitution. He said the laws were only effective against the poor while rich and powerful were always defied them. The PTI slogan to introduce across the board accountability and bringing powerful under the law proved pack of lies, he said, adding the present government was the protector of status quo.
Reiterating his demand for the fresh poll in the elections, he said the country could not go ahead by changing only the faces. The people should stand for their right which the ruling elite never bothered to provide them, he said.
Sirajul Haqsaid the JI was struggling for bringing real change and the welfare of the people was epicenter of its efforts. The JI’s 101 sit-in movement, he said, will continue until the achievement of its objective to transform Pakistan into real welfare Islamic state.
