PTI government is a “new edition” of past governments: Sirajul Haq

Lahore, January 05, 2019 (PPI-OT): Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the PTI government was “new edition” of the past governments and its five months output was nothing except claims and promises. Addressing the central Shoora of the JI at Mansoora, he said there was a change only in the name as the policies had remained unchanged. He said that the past rulers had betrayed the Pakistan ideology which resulted in the fall of Dhaka. He said the responsibility of the colossal debt on the country lay with the politicians who had been returning to the assemblies on the ticket of one party or the other. He said that those in power at present were not new.

The JI chief said that partial accountability would not reform the society and a ruthless accountability was the need of the hour. He said that all those who had plundered the public money, devoured huge bank loans and transferred their wealth abroad must be brought to the dock and made to account for their wealth. He said this was the demand of the whole nation and not the JI alone. Sirajul Haq said that not even a penny of the looted wealth had been recovered so far.

He said that the nation would not believe the claims of the rulers unless the plundered wealth lying abroad was retrieved and the country did not need to ask for financial help from any one. The JI chief further said that the country could not progress without true democracy. He said whenever there were elections, fingers were raised on these from different quarters as the majority of the people remained indifferent about these. He said the election petitions were not decided even for five year due to which, the public lost confidence in the election system.
