LAHORE: Ameer, Jamaat-e-Islami Senator Sirajul Haq has called upon the government to explain to the masses how much loan it had obtained so far and where the amount had been spent.
He was talking to the media after inspecting the arrangements for the provincial Ijtema of the party at Wahdat Road ground being held from October 28 to 30.
Sirajul Haq said that drug and sugar mafias and smugglers had taken refuge in political parties and the so-called political parties were playing in the hands of these criminals simply to remain in power.
Declaring that the JI was a truly democratic and progressive party, Sirajul Haq said the JI would go any extent to free the nation from the clutches of the plunderers. He also appealed to the masses to free themselves from the hold of the serpents that had wasted seventy precious years of the nation and were pushing the country backward instead of going forward.
Sirajul Haq said that those ruling the country belonged to the families who had been granted Jagirs by the British rulers for their loyalty to the colonial rulers. These people had only been plundering public money and building their bank accounts.
He said the JI wanted supremacy of the constitution and rule of law, and added that the county was not secure in the presence of the rulers. He demanded cutting down the assemblies term to four years as in the US, Britain and France, so that a government which failed to deliver could be sent home earlier.
Sirajul Haq said the eyes of the entire nation were now on the Supreme Court and it was awaiting an independent and impartial judicial commission which could bring all the plunderers to accountability, duly punish them and recover all looted money from them. He appealed to the apex court to hold day to day hearing of the Panama leaks case.
JI Punjab chief Mian Maqsood Ahmed told newsmen that the Ijtema of the JI Punjab would not only defend the ideological borders of the country but also give the future line of action for the nation.
