*PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shaukat Yousafzai on Saturday strongly criticised Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and its chief Sirajul Haq terming them “snake in the grass”*.
JI Ameer Sirajul Haq on Friday stirred a hornet’s nest when he claimed that PTI received orders ‘from the top’ to vote for Sadiq Sanjrani for the post of Senate chairman.
“I was disappointed at Sirajul Haq’s statement but not amazed, they (the JI) has this habit of criticizing their coalition partners after enjoying ministries for five years, their position is no different than that of a snake in the grass,” Shoukat Yousafzai said while reacting to JI Ameer’s statement.
Yousafzai also criticised Jamaat-e-Islami for what he termed “use of religious politics” to get into government.
“He (Sirajul Haq) shouldn’t forget that if he is in upper house today, it is because of PTI , we gave them (JI) ministries but today they are criticizing us,” Yousafzai said.
