MANDI BAHAUDDIN: Claiming credit for saving the country from an imminent martial law in the recent past, Amir Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq on Friday night said that the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has not learnt anything from the past.
Speaking at a public rally organised in the wake of by-election in NA-108 here, he vowed to eradicate the masses in Punjab of oppressing rulers if given a chance.
The by-polls are scheduled for June 8 after the seat got vacated due to disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) MNA Ijaz Chaudhry over fake degree and concealment of assets.
The JI amir in his speech today said that the same one class has been ruling over the country for the last 50 years. “A corrupt group has a complete authority over your democracy,” he said.
Commenting over Budget 2015-16, Haq said there was nothing for the poor in this year’s budget announced earlier today by Finance Minister Ishaq Dar.
“Federal budget is nothing but a compilation of big words and figures,” he remarked.
Terming the budget as disappointing and anti-labourer, he questioned as to how a country can progress where farmers were not happy.
Sirajul Haq urged the masses to vote for the JI candidate on June 8.
