Rising inflation most pressing issue of Pakistan: Baloch

Lahore

Lahore:Jamaat-e-Islami Deputy Emir Liaqat Baloch has said the unbridled inflation has become the biggest issue of the country as masses are starving and unable to meet their both ends in prevailing circumstances.

In a statement issued from Mansoora on Saturday, he said the PTI government proved itself the agent of the status quo and it was following the footsteps of the previous government of PML-N, PPP and Parvez Musharraf. The country, he added, could be pulled out of the crises by introducing interest free economy, strengthening agriculture sector and decreasing the prices of oil, gas, electricity and essential food items.

Baloch appealed to the different Afghan forces to forget their mutual difference and sit on table for the sake of the people of the country.

He said closing down the educational institutions and sports activities were not solution to the problem of coronavirus issue.

Meanwhile, JI Deputy Emir Rashid Naseem said the coronavirus was the sign of wrath of Allah Almighty and the only way possible to get rid of it was that people sought His forgiveness and mercy. He said those who considered themselves superpowers were helpless before the virus.
