Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq has held the ruling elite responsible for the country’s problems, appealing the masses to stand against injustice and start a peaceful democratic struggle to get rid of the status quo.

In interactions with party workers at Mansoora on Sunday, he said the two-percent elite had taken control of the state resources for decades and they had nothing to do with the poor masses.

Sirajul Haq said that the successive governments took massive foreign loans and spent the money on their own luxuries.

Had the country’s resources and the loans used for the welfare of the masses, the situation could have been different, he said.

“The PTI too failed to bring any change,” he said, adding the ruling party religiously followed the track of its predecessors—the PML-N and the PPP.

The JI chief said the prime minister made tall claims to transform Pakistan into Madina state and bring real change but his government performed even worse than the former regimes. He said inflation, bad governance, unemployment brought disaster to the life of people. He said the PTI failed to introduce police reforms and no progress was made on the CPEC.
