JI sees ‘corruption kings’ in PTI govt

January 26, 2020

LAHORE:While questioning the inaction of the rulers against sugar and flour mafias, Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq has said the corruption kings sitting in ranks of the ruling parties have hijacked the policies of the government.

Presiding over a meeting of party leaders at Mansoora on Saturday, he said the government laid blame on mafias for the exorbitant rise in the prices of sugar and shortage of flour but took no action against the culprits. The government silence, he added, proved that all the mafias were working under its own banner. It was the main reason, he said, the accountability drive of this regime also met a failure. How the ruling party could send its own men behind the bar, he questioned. He said the masses wanted to know who were behind the crisis and made billions of rupees throw it.

He also expressed surprise that why the courts had so far not taken action against those who created flour and sugar crises in the country which was one of the world’s biggest producers of the commodities in the world.

He said the overall situation had turned pathetic and Jamaat-e-Islami was left with no option but to start a countrywide campaign against the government policies.

The JI chief said the PTI lacked ability to run the government affairs and it proved itself even worst from their predecessors. He said the so-called main opposition parties also failed to raise voice of the matter of public concerns.

Senator Siraj said the government developed a weak and flawed foreign policy and abandoned the Kashmir cause. He said the Kashmir rallies were organized across the country and abroad on February 5.

Talking on occasion, JI Secretary General Ameerul Azim said the JI could no more remain silent on the issues of inflation, unemployment and flawed economic and foreign policies.

He said the masses were starving but the ruling elite turned a blind eye to their problems. He said inflation broke all previous records and thousands lost their jobs in past few months due to flawed policies of the rulers. JI information Secretary General Qaisar Sharif and other leaders attended the meeting.
