Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq has said that the government seems in a state of helplessness to bring any change in the country. Talking to the JI workers at Mansoora on Saturday, he said the ruling party was leaving a bad impression about its performance and it seemed that the government was inching towards decline with every day passing.
He said the PTI made the people desperate in past 14 months of its rule, making it obvious that the rulers lacked direction and policy to bring the country out of prevailing political and economic crises.
He said there was no check in skyrocketing inflation and rising unemployment. A common man, he added, was unable to feed the family twice a day. Youth were worried about the future as there were no job opportunities in public and private sectors, he regretted.
Siraj said instead of providing 10 million jobs to the people, the government policies rendered a million jobless since the day PTI came into power. He asked the government not to make excuses and fulfill its promise to build five millions houses. He said the enforcement of Sharia in true spirit was the solution to the all problems facing the country.
Siraj, on occasion, expressed grief over the death of poet Ijaz Rahmani and prayed may his soul rest in peace. He also expressed condolence to Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi over the demise of his sister and prayed for her soul.
Meanwhile, JI Emir Liaqat Baloch termed the opening of Kartarpur corridor a good step but at the same time warned the government against showing over excitement in building friendly relations with India at the cost of Kashmir.
In a statement, he said there was nothing wrong in allowing Sikh pilgrims to visit Kartarpur site but the nation would not allow the government to hold backdoor diplomacy with New Delhi at a time when Indian forces unleashed a new chapter of violence on the people of held Kashmir.
