PTI lacked capacity, vision to run country: Siraj


Jamaat-i-Islami s (JI) mass demonstration against countrywide inflation ended at D-Chowk in Islamabad on Sunday. The demonstration was started from Embassy Road.

Crossing-over all the barriers placed in D-Chowk the protesters held the demonstration under leadership of Chief Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq.

JI Chief Sirajul Haq addressing the participants of youth march demanded fair and transparent election from the government. He added that their party supports a system of complete democracy.

Thousands of participants of the march raised slogans against the anti-youth policies of the government. Reminding the prime minister his promise to create 10 million jobs, the protestors marched from Ambassy Road to D-Chowk and vowed to continue struggle for their rights until the rulers ensure provision of their rights.

Sirajul Haq said it had been proved after three years that PTI lacked capacity and vision to run the country. Unemployment and inflation were uncontrolled and more than 20 million children were out of schools due to poverty, he said, adding the ruling elite never paid attention to the common man issues whether it was the government of the PTI or the former regimes of the PML-N and the PPP.

The JI chief said the people from Karachi to Gwadar were protesting for their rights but the rulers were not willing to listen to their demands.

He demanded the government address the demands of fishermen of Gwardar and ensure compensation to the Nasla Town affectees. He also raised the issue of missing persons, reminding the prime minister his old claims about the long lingering tragedy. He said the rulers must address the deprivations of the people of Balochistan.

He hailed the struggle of the JI Karachi chapter Emir Hafiz Naeemur Rahman and JI Balochistan chapter Secretary General Maulana Hidayatur Rahman for fighting for the rights of the residents of Karachi and Gwadar. He also congratulated JI Youth President Zubair Gondal for organizing a peaceful and successful march of the youth.

Sirajul Haq said the nation must stand for their rights and launch a peaceful struggle to get rid of the ruling elite.

He said youth instead of being hopeless, should fight against the oppressors. He said the country could not go ahead without sending home the feudal lords and agents of the status quo. JI secretary general Ameerul Azim and other leaders also spoke on occasion.
