Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan twisted facts in his address to the nation today and that he should have compared the facilities available to the people of European countries with those present in Pakistan before linking inflation in the country to the west.
“The prime minister has not presented the full picture in his address to the nation. He twisted the facts as he did in every speech. The fact is that the prices of food commodities are less even in Afghanistan as compared to our country. Inflation and unemployment rates are higher in Pakistan as compared to the region,” he said while addressing a meeting of the central leadership at Mansoorah, Lahore, on Wednesday.
The PTI, he said, performed so badly in three years that it even disappointed its supporters and ‘backers’. The government boat was sinking and the rulers were confused, he added.
The JI chief announced that JI would organize a march of unemployed youth towards Islamabad on November 28. The march, he added, had to be held on October 31 but was postponed due to the political situation emerging after the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan sit-in.
It was decided in the JI meeting that the party’s movement against ‘skyrocketing inflation’, the ‘tsunami of unemployment’ and ‘anti-people policies’ of the PTI would further expedite in coming days.
The JI chief said the rulers should go home if they could not provide justice to the people. The PTI disappointed the masses and failed to address the problems facing the country, he added. In fact, he said, the PTI kept the status quo intact but made false claims that it was an agent of change.
The meeting decided that the JI would organize the party at union council level, and youth and women would be particularly focused upon during the campaigns.
Highlighting the need to start a peaceful democratic struggle at mass level to transform Pakistan into an Islamic welfare state, the JI chief appealed to the people to help the JI to achieve this objective.
He said that Pakistan could not move ahead with a corrupt system and there was a dire need to get rid of the feudal lords and corrupt capitalists sucking the blood of the masses for decades.
