Chief of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan, Sirajul Haq has warned the government that its privatization policy would bring further economic instability, saying there is dire need to strengthen and stabilize the government entities rather to sell them at throwaway prices.
Talking to JI workers at Mansoora on Thursday, he said the gulf between poor and rich was widening and all international institutions were presenting a gloomy picture of Pakistan’s economy.
Sirajul Haq said the country could not afford more loan on tough conditions of the IMF as it would bring another wave of inflation and unemployment and multiply the troubles of common man.
He said inflation was already crossing all limits days ahead of the start of holy month of Ramzan.
He said the PTI failed to fulfill commitments it made with the masses during election campaign.
He said the accountability had turned into a joke and reforms in police sector were yet to be introduced. He said the people avoided going to police stations for registration of an FIR.
The JI chief said the agriculture and industrial sectors had witnessed no change in around three years of PTI rule.
He said farmers were worried as pure seed was unavailable, water shortage was a permanent problem and electricity and pesticides and fertilizers prices were touching the skies.
He said the PTI government proved itself the most incapable regime of the country’s history.
