PPP, PML-N have always sided with establishment: Sirajul Haq

Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq on Sunday said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) sided with the government in every legislative process in the parliament.

Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq on Sunday said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) have always sided with the establishment in every legislative process in the parliament. “Nawaz Sharif, who appeared to be a revolutionary leader in his latest speech, has been in power thrice before standing up against the establishment, and incumbent government,” he said.

Sirajul Haq was talking to media in Karachi when he said that the major opposition parties in the country, both PML-N and PPP, did not play the role of real opposition in the parliament.

He said that PML-N and PPP always helped the government during the legislative process due to which Jamaat-e-Islami stayed away from the All Parties Conference (APC) held in Islamabad on Sunday.

The JI chief said that the President, Governor, and several federal ministers belong to Karachi, yet they have failed to solve the problems faced by the people of Karachi.

In the past few years, the PML-N has been at loggerheads with the country’s establishment. The former prime minister even accused senior officials of rigging last year’s elections in an attempt to facilitate Prime Minister Imran Khan’s party.

‘JI won’t not attend APC’

The politico-religious party, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), had announced it would not become part of any political alliance. A central leader of the party, Liaqat Baloch, said in a statement earlier this month that Majlis-i-Shura of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) had made a decision to continue all political activities in the country under its own flag.

While referring to the alliance of opposition parties, Liaqat Baloch said that JI leadership has given a clear message to Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) of not being part of any coalition after getting an invitation from JUI-F supremo Maulana Fazlur Rehman to join the APC.

Controversial remarks of former PM Nawaz 

It is worth recalling that the ousted Prime Minister and former head of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) made some ‘irresponsible’ and ‘controversial’ remarks on Mumbai attacks.

PTI’s chief Imran Khan who was an opposition leader at that time said in a tweet,” Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains. Nawaz speaking Modi’s language against Pak State simply to protect his ill-gotten Rs 300b stashed in his sons’ companies abroad.”

He further said that “today NS stands exposed before the nation. To try & protect his wrongdoings he is not only willing to destroy all Pak State institutions, including the army, NAB, SC, but also the future of our country”.
