JUI-F Chief blames PTI for corruption in KP
PESHAWAR: Central Amir of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) F, Maulana Fazlur Rehman Tuesday alleged that corruption in on the top in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa despite of the fact that PTI's politics is based on sloganeering against the menace.
Maulan Fazlur Rehman said this while addressing a gathering held in connection with joining of JUI(F) by scores of youngsters having affiliation with Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI). Leaders of JUI(F) including former Senator, Haji Ghulam Ali and Jalil Jan were also present on the occasion.
However now, he continued, as the government is heading towards completion of its tenure, foreign funding has been stopped and now the provincial government is getting an hefty loan of Rs. 70 billion from foreign banks.
He said the decision of KP government of making Quran learning compulsory in schools is also aimed at befooling masses.
In the last four years, the government and its party leaders were working against the rich cultural norms of the region and now trying to hoodwink masses by making this decision to earn sympathies of people.
He said in four months of dharna (sit in) organized by PTI in Islamabad, what people witnessed is testimony to the fact that the agenda of this party is to promote unIslamic culture in an Islamic country.
JUI(F) chief also claimed that corruption was all low in KP during the five year tenure of Mutahidda Majlis-e-Amal (MMA).
He said JUI(F) is struggling for promotion of Islamic values and our whole politics revolves around attainment of this goal.
He said many times, secular lobby in the country made attempts for passages of unIslamic laws from the assembly, but it was JUI(F) which stands as a bulwark against these elements.
He also welcomed new entrants into JUI(F) and appreciated their decision of leaving the PTI ranks. (APP)
