MANSEHRA: Provincial amir of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUIF) Senator Maulana Attaur Rehman has said the government has not announced any effective measures in the budget to control the rising inflation and poverty in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

“The prices of sugar, wheat flour, pulses and other essential commodities have gone out of consumers’ purchasing power in the province but the government didn’t announce any remedial measures in its budget,” the senator told a condolence reference held on Monday in the memory of a local JUIF leader Maulana Shah Abdul Aziz, who died of the coronavirus last year.

He paid tributes to the late Shah Abdul Aziz for his contribution to the party and politics. The senator said the government claimed that it presented the ever highest outlay budget but it in fact disappointed people who were waiting for the generous financial support in such a high inflation and poverty conditions in the province.

“The government is involved in the political victimisation of our party’s leaders and office-bearers, this is why it had put Mufti Kifayatullah in jail,” he said.Speaking on the occasion, central JUIF leader Senator Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haidari said that his predecessors had not bowed to the British rulers and would never surrender to, what he believed were, brutalities being committed by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government against their leader and workers.He demanded the government to release Mufti Kifayatullah.
