The central Shoora of the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has termed PTI government’s performance totally disappointing, saying the failure of its economic, political, internal, as well as foreign policies, was a big national tragedy.
A resolution adopted by the Shoora preside over by JI Ameer Senator Sirajul Haq said that the speed at which the government had failed and lost popularity was itself a record and even after the passage of one year, it was at ‘Zero Point’ and its agenda was a concern.
It said PTI’s promises of building 350 dams, five million low-priced houses, provision of 10 million jobs for the youth, plantation of 10 billion saplings, curtailing state expenditure and ending protocol has become a dream.
JI Shoora said the impression that the political decisions were not being taken by the parliament but by some other institution was most disturbing.
It said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had been terming IMF loans as suicidal but the government had accepted IMF loans on most stringent terms. The value of the rupee had fallen to a record low and the rise in the prices of electricity, gas, and POL despite fall in POL prices in the world markets had angered the masses. It said that the budget was being imposed through un-parliamentary tactics.
The resolution also said that the Prime Minister’s support to India for UN Security Council seat instead of lobbying against India’s unlawful occupation of held Kashmir was a total deviation from the national Kashmir policy.
Opposition Gave Priority to Leaders’ Release
The JI Shoora said that flood of taxes had led to the closure of the textile and several other industries and the business community was highly disappointed. On the other hand, it said, the opposition parties had disappointed the people by giving priority to the release of their leadership to economic issues.
Under these circumstances, it said, the JI had decided to play the role of real opposition and seek relief for the poor masses. JI Shoora said the impression that the political decisions were not being taken by the parliament but by some other institution was most disturbing.
JI Demands Withdrawal of Reference against Justice Isa
Among other things, the statement said that the statements of the non-political institution about the reference against the Supreme Court judge Justice Faez Isa, heavy taxes on the general public besides the business community were matters of deep concern. The Shoroa demanded withdrawal of the reference against Justice Isa.
