LAHORE - JI chief Sirajul Haq has said the masses will dig out the plunderers ‘even if they hide deep below the earth surface’.

In a statement issued from JI head office Mansora yesterday, the JI amir warned that he would not allow the feudal lords and capitalists to digest the national wealth.

He requested the people to support the Jamaat-e-Islami in order to get rid of the ruling elite, ‘Mughal princes’ and political pundits. For the last 70 years, he said, the country was being ruled by a few families who had been awarded estates by the British rulers for betraying their own nation and loyalty to the colonial rulers.

“The ruling elite have deprived the masses from basis resources but they themselves enjoy all luxuries of life on public money. “Farmers and workers are unable to make both ends meet despite day long labour as the government is sucking their blood through exorbitant utilities bills and oppressive taxes,” Siraj said, according to the statement.

He added that the door of education, health, employment and justice were closed to the common man. The solution lies only in throwing out the tyrant rulers by electing honest, patriotic and leadership, he further suggested.

According to Siraj, the JI alone can end corruption as the hands of its leadership are clean.

Further hitting at opponents, Sirajul Haq said that other political parties befooling the general public in the name of democracy did not have democracy in their own ranks.

“The Panama leaks, Dubai leaks and Wiki leaks have badly exposed the corrupt rulers.”

Meanwhile, JI secretary general Liaqat Baloch said it was immaterial if Islamabad was shut or open, as the masses only wanted end to corruption and ruthless accountability of the plunderers irrespective of their party affiliation.

“If the Prime Minister removes the hurdles in the establishment of a judicial commission for accountability, the prevailing crisis will naturally come to an end,” Baloch added.
