Political crisis may lead to tragedy: Siraj

PESHAWAR: Jamaat Islami (JI) chief warned on Thursday that not resolving the political crisis could result into a tragedy, adding that the stakeholders don’t have much time and that the ball is now in the government’s court.

Addressing a press conference, Haq said that governments’ tenure passes by but the problem remains unresolved if someone raises the issue of electoral rigging. He said electoral reforms are the critical need of the hour.

He said that Jamaat has prepared a formula after talking to Imran Khan which has been presented to the Prime Minister. He said Nawaz Sharif assured to consider the recommended formula, adding that the ball is in the government’s court now.

He said if the government doesn’t exhibit flexibility then a tragedy can take place on or after August 14.

Jamaat chief said that all political parties should realize the situation and should step forward to resolve the issues. He said the elements who are recommending the government of violence are turning government’s direction toward the wrong path.

He further said that he will wait for the reaction until August 10 and will decide whether or not to participate in Imran Khan’s ‘Azadi March’ after that. Agencies
