Lahore: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, has counseled the opposition parties not to be a party to President Zardari’s game to delay the elections. Talking to the media men Thursday after inaugurating the dialysis unit at the Mansoora Teaching Hospital, he said the gang of four in power was struggling hard to prolong its rule and there was a conspiracy to postpone the elections for a year in the name of back door political activities. He said, none of the opposition parties should fall into Zardari’s trap.
Syed Munawar Hasan said a conspiracy was also going on to remove Justice rtd Fakhrud Din G. Ibrahim, from the office of the Chief Election Commissioner. He stressed upon the CEC not to yield to any pressure and assured that the nation was with him. He said, fresh elections were the only solution to the present situation. He said all political parties should unite on the one point agenda of setting up a consensus interim government to hold fair and free elections under an independent Election Commission on the basis of transparent electoral rolls.
The JI Ameer said that the political party promising Roti, kapra and Makan had snatched all the three basic necessities from the masses besides depriving them from education, health and employment as well. The masses had been placed at the mercy of the terrorists. The facilities of education and health available to the masses were only from the private sector while the government high ups were simply minting money and transferring their wealth to foreign banks. Even the relief goods received from abroad were also whisked away by the government functionaries. The rulers were simply pursuing theUSagenda. Jehad too was continuing in private sector and the government as well as the army seemed to have abandoned it.
He deplored that the armies of 57 Muslim countries had become a tool in the hands of the enemy continuing atrocities inKashmir,Palestine. The dialysis centre has been set up at a cost of Rs. 38 million and has three dialysis machines at present while three more would be added shortly. At present, the unit had facilities for five patients at a time.
