Govt fails to ful­fil elec­tion prom­ises: JI

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

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
