PTI govt policies failed in just 8 months: JI

April 11, 2019

LAHORE:Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the PTI’s was the first government in Pakistan’s history whose policies had collapsed within eight months. He was talking to a delegation of delegation of experts headed by president of the JI’s Economic Committee and ex-Member, F.B.R., Sarfraz Ahmed Khan, at Mansoora.

Sirajul Haq said that despite financial support from Saudi Arabia and UAE, the country’s economy was unstable. He said there was much talk of accountability but not a penny of the plundered money had been recovered.

He said the amnesty schemes had proved a failure even in the past as it was a tactic to whiten the black money. He said each government had provided this facility to the people amassing wealth through unfair means. He said that while in opposition, the PTI leadership had been deadly opposed to amnesty but was now talking of its merits.

The JI chief said the party making the nation to dream of development and prosperity had moved the wheel of economy backward. The poor had already been starving but their plight had worsened now. He said the government had raised the prices of electricity, gas and POL to an extent that the common man was finding it hard to make both ends meet. Over and above that, he said, the ministers were counseling the people to have only one loaf at a time which was rubbing salt on their wounds.

Sirajul Haq said that from the very first day, the PTI government had been blaming the previous rulers of all problems and it seemed that even at the end of its five year term, the government would be harping on the same tune.

He said the businessmen were the hardest hit under the present government. Due to government policies, small industrial units had been closed which was adding to unemployment. He said that neither unemployment could be overcome without providing protection to the private sector nor the prices could be controlled without that.

Sirajul Haq said the exporters were finding it hard to compete in the international market and the exports were coming down. He said that the government was exploiting the whole nation only to secure the twelve billion dollar IMF loan.

He advised the government to abandon the interest based economic system and adopt the Islamic economic system and assured that this change would bring about miraculous results.
