QUETTA: Provincial chief of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Maulana Abdul Wasey has announced that a protest movement will be launched against the Balochistan government after Eidul Azha because, he claimed, it has failed to resolve people’s problems.

Talking to party workers here on Monday, he said due to wrong policies and the alleged discriminatory attitude of the government towards elected representatives belonging to opposition parties things have become more difficult.

Poor people were not getting two square meals due to sky-rocketing hike in prices of essential items, which had broken their back, the JUI-F leader said.

Wasey accuses Jam-led govt of adopting discriminatory attitude

Maulana Wasey, who is a member of the National Assembly, said a protest movement against the provincial government would be launched on July 29 in Quetta and other district headquarters in the province.

“The incompetent and selected government has failed to deliver. It has given the people only disappointment by not keeping its promises during the past three years,” he said, adding that the people were facing long hours of electricity load-shedding in the harsh hot weather.

“Despite people’s protests the government has taken no action against the officials of Qesco [Quetta Electric Supply Company] as load shedding is destroying orchards and standing crops in Balochistan,” the Maulana said.

He said the government had even failed to give a new National Finance Commission award despite remaining in power for three years.

The JUI-F leader said if the present rulers were given more time to rule the country they would completely destroy the national economy.
