Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq has warned that the rulers should be cognizant of growing frustration among the people of Balochistan.

Talking to party leaders at Mansoorah on Saturday after return from a two-day visit to Pishin and Karachi, he said the biggest province was presenting a depressing picture of affairs. He said the governments had paid no attention to the problems and kept the people deprived even from basic health and education facilities for years.

Sirajul said that it was matter of grave concern that despite having enormous natural resources, majority in Balochistan lacked access to evendrinking water. Residents of Gwadar, he said, were protesting for their rights for months but the rulers were least bothered to address the issues. Karachi, he said, on the other side was also facing a plethora of problems.

The metropolitan, he said, was without basic infrastructure with heaps of garbage could be seen everywhere. Millions in the city lacked access to

drinking water and faced electricity and gas lad shedding, he added.

The JI chief held the PDM, the PPP and the PTI equally responsible for the economic destruction. He said the present and past governments’ ill-conceived policies and bad-governance led the country towards prevailing crises.
