JI pushes for revamping of political system


NOWSHERA: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Chief Sirajul Haq on Sunday stressed the need for revamping of the prevailing political system in the country.

Addressing a rally, Sirajul Haq said that the former prime minister complained that the courts were not dispensing justice. He said that the same judicial system had prevailed when he had been the chief executive of the country thrice but he never bothered to reform the system.

The JI chief said that the present political system had failed to provide any relief to the masses. It had been proved that instead of curbing crime and corruption, the system was facilitating the cheats and plunderers in coming to power, he added.

He said that the people who were responsible for all the present ills were again in the run and were begging for votes to return to power so that they could continue sucking the blood of the people.

Sirajul Haq said that horse trading for Senate elections was at its peak and every effort was being made to secure Senate seat on the power of wealth instead of capability. He said that the parties which had only four assembly members had fielded two Senate candidates and persons having no political background were also keen to return to the Upper House. He said that the corrupt mafia and criminals, upon returning to the Senate, would only pursue personal goals.

The JI chief said that those who had been in power three times would have done something for the uplift of the masses if they had been concerned about the people, adding that it was of no use now to shed crocodile tears.

He further said that the present government was burdening the masses with more taxes and by raising prices of petroleum products.

Sirajul Haq said that if the country’s leadership was of this nature, the foreign policy would fail and US President Donald Trump would be issuing further threats to the country.

He said that the MMA was being revived and it would reform the country’s rotten system by carrying out across-the-board accountability. He further said that the MMA would implement the 1973 constitution in letter and spirit and it would help solve all the problems of the country and restore peace.
