LAHORE Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Syed Munawar Hasan has welcomed government decision to withdraw the recent raise in the POL prices, saying it was a wise step taken on strong public pressure. In a statement issued here Thursday, he expressed the hope that the rulers would also take steps to overcome the present self-made crisis of gas/ electricity to minimize the common mans problems. Syed Munawar Hasan said that had the rulers kept the public welfare and national interest in mind before increasing the POL prices under the IMF and World Bank pressure, they would have been saved from the retreat. He further said that the rulers would have to account for the unjustified killings by drone attacks and for handing over countrys airbases to the US against national sovereignty and honour. He said that if the rulers had not injured nations confidence, they would not have been helpless as at present.
