LAHORE: Chief of Jamaat-e-Islami Senator Sirajul Haq has said that the political polarization would further enhance if the demands of the masses living in neglected areas were not addressed on priority basis

He said that due to unfair distribution of resources, the sense of deprivation is increasing among the small provinces and underdeveloped areas of Pakistan. According to media cell of JI at Mansoora Lahore, he was addressing a training workshop of the JI workers in Upper Dir on Sunday. The rulers, he said, completely ignored the Malakand Division in the federal budget despite the fact that the area could attract thousands of tourists and add billions of rupees in national kitty if government made a little focus on its development.

But, he regretted, the rulers sitting in Islamabad and Peshawar were not ready to listen to the demands of the public and bent upon damaging every sector from economy to law and order, he added.

He said it seemed the days of the present rulers were numbered and they were ready to go home. The PTI government, he said, did nothing for the welfare of the masses in past 22 months. Those who brought the PTI in power were also seemed frustrated and fed up, he said, adding the "minus all" formula was going to be happened in near future instead of speculations of minus-one or minus-two.

Senator Siraj asked the people to vote for the JI if they wanted to see a developed Pakistan. He said only dedicated and honest leadership could resolve the chronic issues facing the masses for decades.

The JI chief said the PTI handed over the entire government affairs to the IMF, enslaving the public in the debt track laid by the lending agency. He said inflation and unemployment were rampant and a common man was starving due to bad policies of the rulers. He said the country could not be put on the path of the development without ensuring the fair distribution of resources and introducing an interest free economy.
