GWADAR: Jamaat-i-Islami emir Sirajul Haq has alleged that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government has written history with its bad governance and incompetence during the past three years and it seems it is still directionless in its bid to fix the country’s economy.
Speaking at a press conference in Turbat, he said the people from Gwadar to Chitral are now fed up with the government’s performance because it has given them only inflation, unemployment and poverty.
The JI chief has visited Gwadar to express solidarity with the people taking part in the ongoing protest movement in the port city, Gwadar Ko Huqooq Do Tehreek (Give Rights to Gwadar Movement). He urged the government to meet the demands of the protesters.
Mr Haq held a meeting with National Party president and Balochistan former chief minister Abdul Malik Baloch. The two leaders discussed the current political situation and other matters of mutual interests.
Speaking at the press conference, the JI chief said Balochistan is rich with natural resources, but the poverty ratio in the province is high. He said the youth of Balochistan is jobless and the rich agriculture land is barren due to unavailability of water and government support.
