RAHIM YAR KHAN: The Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) will announce a new phase of protest after reaching Rawalpindi if the government fails to control inflation and corruption and give the roadmap of interest-free economic system in three days, says Emir Sirajul Haq.

Speaking just before launch of the train march at the railway station on Saturday, he criticised the government for delay in arrival of Khyber Mail by which the protest was to be started.

He said the federal railways minister informed him about the time of arrival of train but when he boarded the train he learnt that it was the one (Khyber Mail) which was supposed to arrive on Friday but reached on Saturday.

He said there was no justice, rule of law and merit and the PDM and the PTI were involved in mere political point-scoring. “Shehbaz Sharif says the PTI made wrong agreements with the IMF and he will discontinue all these agreements. These people are hurdle in the development of people,” he said.

The people of Gwadar, he said, were protesting and the youth of Balochistan were rebelling.

He also criticised the PPP for poverty and unemployment in Sindh.
