KARACHI: The rulers not serious to resolve lingering civic issues of Karachi, said Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chapter amir Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman, talking to media here on Monday.
He said eater, electricity and public transport are the main problems of Karachi. He said his party has filed a petition against load shedding. He said the promises were not fulfilled that were made when the KESC, now KE, was being privatized.
He said K-Electric´s very poor performance has created immense difficulties for citizens of Karachi. He said Karachiites are paying heavy price for incompetence and bad governance of the rulers.
He said due to the electoral corruption and rigged electoral system, people are unable to choose their real leadership. Whenever JI has found the opportunity, it has demonstrated high performance and exemplary service. “We increased the budget of Karachi from four billion rupees to forty billion rupees during the mayor ship of Nimatullah Khan.”
JI leader said his party is running a campaign against corruption in the whole country. The corruption-free Pakistan campaign is a need of the hour, he said, adding it is the voice of every Pakistani´s heart.
Corruption is the root cause of all evils in Pakistan, he said adding the basic reason of the problems of people of Pakistan is that rulers are protecting the corrupt elements. Corrupt electoral system needs early reforms and for this people need to raise their voice.
He further said, JI´s elected representatives work with the spirit of service and they are not accused of any corruption. He said fake voter lists and politicized polling staff pay important role in rigged polling system.
The JI leader regretted that the government wants to privatize national institutions on the behest of international monetary fund IMF.
He said the Objectives Resolution is the part of Constitution and it cannot be bypassed by the corrupt rulers. No law against Islamic teachings could be enacted but the rulers are not ready to end interest-based economy and banking. Absence of justice in the country is due to not following the teachings of Islam. JI is struggling to change the system. For this purpose se have adopted a peaceful and democratic way. We do not believe in the use of force. We patiently combat discrimination, injustice and terrorism, he concluded.
