Siraj flays rulers for price-hike


March 14, 2019

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami ameer Senator Sirajul Haq has alleged that the PTI government has attacked its own citizens by raising prices of power, gas and petrol.

Sirajul Haq said this while addressing a training workshop of JI workers at Mansoora on Wednesday and later talking to the media.

Sirajul Haq demanded the rulers explain the reasons for such exorbitant and sudden hike in prices of essential fuel which was bound to multiply the prices of all commodities to suck the blood of poor masses. He lamented that the PTI government had failed to fulfil even a single promises it made before elections, it had been busy making hue and cry in the assemblies but refrained from even a single legislation to provide relief to the masses.

Sirajul Haq said the Charter of Democracy or other such agreement would not do any good to the country and nation since those political parties which lacked democracy in their own ranks could not be expected to strengthen democracy in the country. He said leaders of these parties were befooling the masses in the name of democracy, to hide each other’s corruption and pressurise the government.

To a question, he said providing proper medical cover not only to former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif but all sick prisoners was the responsibility of the government, adding that health or sickness should not be made a political issue. He said the government was looking up to the US although the US had never stood by this country.

Sirajul Haq said India had banned the JI in Held Kashmir and hundreds of its workers and leaders had been jailed but the rulers remained silent.

The JI secretary-general Liaquat Baloch on the occasion warned that Indian Prime Minister Modi could again commit aggression on Pakistan to win election or instigate anti-Muslim riots in India. He said Milli Yakjehti Council would continue its efforts to maintain unity among all sects of Muslims, adding that enforcement of Nizam-e-Mustafa (PBUH) alone could make Pakistan strong and prosperous.

urban forest policy: Punjab Minister for Transport Jahanzaib Khan Khichi has said urban forest policy in Punjab is a good step of PTI’s government which will greatly help establish clean and green atmosphere.

During a meeting with various public delegations at his office here on Wednesday, the minister said people from different walks of life should actively participate in the success of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s ‘Billion Tree Tsunami’ project for setting up a healthy society.

Jahanzaib Khichi said the goal of clean and green as well as literate Pakistan was not far. He said Pakistan would achieve all its targets under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan. He said all out recourses were being utilised for converting Punjab as a clean and green province. He said under urban tree plantation policy, trees would be planted in cities at a large scale.
