JI distributes ration

Lahore

April 8, 2020

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami ameer Senator Sirajul Haq said the nation demanded operation clean-up against those involved in sugar and flour scandals in line with the manifesto of the PTI government as a policy to eliminate influential corrupt mafia from the country.

Talking to the media after distributing ration and financial help among the porters at Lahore railway station, he said mere pointing out the ministers minting money was not enough as the people already knew them. He said that shifting someone from the right to the left or vice versa would not help the situation as the nation had already lost its patience. PREM Union leader Hafiz Salman But and JI Lahore chief Zikrullah Mujahid were also present on the occasion. Siraj said that the PTI had come to power on the slogan of accountability but it appeared to be total failure in this regard in the last two years. It was yet to be seen how much accountability had been carried out, how many corrupt people had been caught and how much money had been recovered from them, he said. He said it was strange that Pakistan railway had set up quarantine centres in two train bogies although there were two railway hospitals close to the station.
