QUETTA - Central Secretary General Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri has said that they would bring reforms in all the fields of life if voted to power.

He said this during a Press conference at Quetta Press Club while unveiling the manifesto of JUI-F here on Thursday. Reflecting upon the foreign policy, he said that they would establish relations with all the countries on the basis of equality.

He said that they would make Pakistan an Islamic State and the State religion would be Islam, adding, that Quran and Sunnah would be the basic law of the land.

He said that the Mohammadan system would be the system of government in Pakistan. “A strong system of accountability would be mapped out for the affairs of the government and adherence to them would be made mandatory,” he said and added they had presented an accountability bill in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa but due to the fact they did not occupy Treasury Benches, they could not get it passed.

“After establishment of Islamic system of government, our foremost priority would be the promotion of education. We have a comprehensive programme in this regard and would also impart language in the native languages,” he added.

He said that they would make education free upto matric class and would, later on, gradually extend this scheme to graduation and ,added, that adult education centres would also be established.

“Acquisition of scientific education would be made easier, private institutions would be encouraged and the autonomy of the Madrassahs would be kept intact,” he said and added the certificates of the Madrassahs would be made equivalent to that of government institutions. “Education system would be implemented in the light of Quran and Sunnah and would provide non-Muslim minorities right to establish their own institutions,” he said and added separate universities would be established for women. “About 15 per cent of total fiscal budget would be allocated for education,” he said and stated that 10 per cent of budget would be allocated for health.

Health centres would be established at all levels and free health services would be provided to all, he said.

Medical colleges would be established on district levels, he added. He said that the country is undergoing energy crisis and total energy production was 9,000 megawatt but Balochistan was only provided 350 mega watts of electricity.

“JUI-F has kept a bench mark of producing 20,000 mega watts of electricity,” he said, adding, that the companies would be provided their money on time and gas crunch would also be tackled. “The local population would be provided gas facility,” he claimed.

He said that JUI-F would provide subsidy on agriculture and would improve the system of irrigation so that more dams would be constructed. “The monthly salary of the labourers would be made equivalent to one tola gold (10 gm),” he said and added the disabled people would be provided stipends.

The provinces shall be given total autonomy and the Federal government would keep foreign policy, currency and communication with itself, he said and, added, that independence of media and judiciary shall be ensured.

A network of roads would be laid in the country and tax evasion would be dealt strictly, he said.

Corruption would be eradicated by punishing involved persons in accordance with the law of the land, he said.
