Concern on Karachi, Balochistan lawlessnessSeptember 21, 2014
Lahore: The central Shoora of the Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, has expressed deep concern over the deteriorating economic conditions of the country, the worsening situation in Karachi and Balochistan, and the failure of the government in resolving the problems of the masses.
The Shoora decided to hold National Conference or Jirga on the situation in Balochistan and its solution to check the separatist tendencies if any.
The Shoora called for immediate Local bodies elections in Karachi and transfer of powers at the lower level.
It deplored that the wrong policies of the rulers had made the country a total slave of the IMF. The government had failed to face the flood situation. It noted that the current floods and the sit-ins in Islamabad had worsened the economic situation of the country.
It said the government policies in the fields of industry and agriculture had failed and public sector institutions were running in heavy losses. There was a wide gap between the imports and the exports, and the burden of foreign debts had increased.
The country had suffered heavily for its role as so called Front Line state in the US war on terror. It noted that the government had failed to implement its election manifesto on which it came to power.
It also expressed concern over the government’s failure to benefit from the youth in the country who comprise a big chunk of the population. It called for revolutionary steps in the fields of education, health, sports to create jobs for the youth and to protect them from crimes and other negative pursuits.
