MARDAN (Dunya News) – Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq stated on Sunday that on Feb 8, the people of Pakistan will shape the future by rejecting what he described as "political jokers" through their votes.

In an indirect reference to the PML-N and PPP, Siraj asserted that national progress was not possible without liberation from the two parties led by powerful families.

While speaking during a ceremony here, Siraj stated that if the JI came into power, they would dismantle the system inherited from the British, eliminate the existing VIP culture and introduce reforms in the bureaucracy.

The JI chief expressed his commitment to eradicating non-development expenditures and using these funds for orphans and disabled individuals.

He promised to provide employment to unemployed youth and ensure education for all. He promised establishment of separate educational institutions for women.

He regretted that poor policies of politicians in power had kept 20 million children out of schools.

Siraj asserted that his party, upon gaining power, would strengthen the economy by eliminating interest from financial institutions, adhering to Islamic principles.

Siraj said that the ruling elite stood exposed and the nation was fed up with the false claims of former rulers who made empty promises without showing any performance.

He criticised the PPP, stating that their 15-year rule in Sindh had shown no progress.

He highlighted that despite being in power for the past three decades, the performance of Nawaz Sharif-led PML-N was zero in reality.

Siraj also blamed the former ruling parties for burdening the state with a debt of Rs80 trillion.

According to the JI chief, an annual corruption of Rs5,000 billion occurs in Pakistan.

Siraj deplored that the policies of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank had been imposed, compounding the hardships of the common people.

He also noted that the economy had deteriorated, the Pakistani rupee had devalued and institutions had weakened.
