TOBA TEK SINGH-Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Naib Ameer Liaqat Baloch has said that Imran Khan’s government has complicated the issue of extension in the service of Chief of Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa with inept handling, emphasizing that the issue must be resolved in constitutional manner.

While addressing a press conference here at Gojra the other night, Baloch said that the Supreme Court has given a proper passage to the government to settle the issue within an immense amount of time. The JI stalwart stated that like Imran Khan who had ended his 126-day-long sit-in at Islamabad empty hands, Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman also did the same.

“The current Imran Khan-led PTI government is perhaps the only government in Pakistan’s history which has been creating crisis for itself,” Baloch claimed, adding that the government claims that Pakistan has come out of financial deficit would only be accepted until the government controls the skyrocketing prices of daily-use items and economic condition of the common man in country is improved. He stressed that the courts should decide cases purely on merit and provide relief to all the ailing prisoners languishing in various prisons like it has provided to Mian Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari. He regretted that the assemblies have been lying dormant and not performing the requisite role for legislation, instead the government has been run with the issuance of ordinances. “The government must focus legislation to make pro-public laws and the opposition should also help the government in all public-welfare and service oriented affairs.
