Govt fails to fulfil election promises: JI
ISLAMABAD —Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Sirajul Haq has said that the JI wanted the government to complete its term but the ruling parties in the centre and in the provinces had not fulfilled their election promises and the masses were totally disappointed.
He was talking to the media at Rohri railway station on Friday morning before boarding the Awam Express on the last leg of the JI three day Train March against corruption. He also addressed a large number of people present on the spot.
Sirajul Haq said that the JI was trying to reach the masses through Train march and build public opinion against corrupt rulers. He said the movement against corruption would enter a new stage on May 30 when he would hold a Jirga of all the youth organizations in the country in the federal capital and announce his next plan.
Replying to media questions, Siraj-ul-Haq said the JI wanted that the ToRs for judicial commission should be effective and the Judicial Commission must be autonomous and have powers to investigate and punish the guilty besides banning the corrupt from taking part in politics.
“If Sirajul Haq is guilty of theft, he must be punished”, he remarked. However, he said that a permanent system should be evolved for the accountability of the parliamentarians and whoever had plundered public money and transferred to foreign accounts, must be brought to accountability. —NNI
