PTI govt is now brain-less: Siraj

LAHORE, April 19 (INP): Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the PTI government is now without the minister whom it called its brain and thus it is now brain-less.

Addressing Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque, he further said since the new Finance Advisor was widely known for his close relations with IMF and the World Bank, it clearly implied that the new man had been inducted at the bidding of these financial institutions.

Sirajul Haq said, on one hand, the government is saying that the previous rulers have ruined the country’s economy while on the other, they were inducting the ex-ministers into its cabinet.

He said, if a revolution had been possible through change of faces and individuals, it would already have been there because every election put forth some new faces.

The JI chief however said that the country’s economy could not improve under the interest based system which was a Zionist and exploitative system and the problems of poverty, unemployment and price hike could not be resolved.

Sirajul Haq said the JI’s struggle was for the Nizam e Mustafa and the masses had no option except to stand by the JI. He was confident that the Islamic revolution was around the corner.

The JI chief said the Prime Minister had reshuffled his cabinet but its new team mostly comprised the men of PPP, the PML-N, MQM and the Musharraf cabinet. These were the people who had been rejected by the masses in the elections but the PTI had brought them back.

Sirajul Haq said that the rulers were talking of Rahman and Ram in the same breath and remarked that the state of Madina and the interest-based economy could not go together.

He said the only objection about Asad Umar was that his terms for loan had not been accepted by the IMF due to which the IMF high ups were annoyed with him and therefore a man having good relations with the IMF had been brought forth.
