Opposition parties joining hands to get rid of corruption cases: JI


Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi head Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman said on Monday the opposition parties using All Parties Conference (APC) platform are struggling to rid themselves of their own cases instead of redressing solutions for the people. Talking to media in the wake of Karachi Referendum it organized, the Karachi chapter president of JI said demands and grievances of the people need to be forcefully voiced. Rehman said the situation of Karachi is deteriorating now and the City of Muhammad Ali Jinnah has been rendered forlorn and helpless. He claimed that none amongst the political parties owns Karachi and its issues, and pointed that even the APC -referring to the Pakistan Democratic Movement power show in the metropolis the other day- did not bother to enlist grievances of Karachi people. The JI leader said the opposition is organizing power-shows just to flex its muscle and get its court cases scrapped, and not to address the problems of the citizenry. He lamented that the grievances of Karachi people were not discussed at all. The Jamaat e Islami leader also expressed anger and disappointment with the incumbent government, noting that it has been in power into the second year and has yet to deliver anything at all. He said despite having won seats from Karachi, the government has made itself scarce for the people. JI Karachi Ameer Hafiz Naeem said the party that boasted itself to represent the metropolis, Muttahida Qaumi Movement- Pakistan (MQM-P), too, has been silent on Karachi’s predicaments. Earlier, Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman visited Federal B Area Association of Trade and Industry and North Association of Trade Industry and met the office-bearers on Monday. Officials and members of the associations also cast their votes in the Karachi referendum. Reza Hussain and Faisal Moeez welcomed Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman to the office of Trade Associations and thanked Jamaat-e-Islami for holding the Karachi Referendum on “Rights Karachi Movement” and said that Jamaat-e-Islami provides the real leadership in the city. Hafiz Naeem said that JI das the ability to solve the problems of the city and was a symbol of service. “Karachi needs a capable leadership to secure the future of the children and only Jamaat-e-Islami meets this standard. Karachi is a big industrial city in which industrial companies pay huge amount of money in terms of taxes. Karachi is the biggest export city of all cities so Karachi should be declared as an export city. He said that after the recent rains, the roads in the industrial area are in a state of disrepair.”
