PESHAWAR: Jamaat-i-Islami chief Senator Sirajul Haq has said that political leaders are promoting a culture of slander and abuses in the country.

Addressing party workers at the Quran conference here on Sunday, he said that the government’s poor performance was exposed in the first nine months.

He said that the countrymen in Makkah and Madina were praying to get rid of this incompetent government.

Senator Haq said that the federal government did not have the plan to pull the country out of the financial crisis. He asked why the present rulers had made commitments about providing 10 million jobs and five million houses with the people when they knew that they could not realise the same.

He said that the economic progress of the country had stalled with the induction of the present government.

He said that now the powers that had brought these incompetent people to power should tell the masses why they were put at the helm of affairs.

The JI chief claimed that Pakistan had been isolated in the international community and the country’s foreign policy lacked direction.

He said that Imran Khan, Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif did not have solutions to the people’s problems and the nation could only be steered out of the present crises by following the teachings of Quran.

He said that the rulers had betrayed the ideology of Pakistan, which had resulted in unemployment, price hike and corruption in the country.
