Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri warns against increasing people’s problems
PAT leader Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that repeated increase in the prices of POL products is an act of oppression. The caretakers should set their direction right. If the burden of circular debt to the tune of Rs. 150 billion shifted on to the people, it will be tantamount to economic exploitation of the citizens. He said that the Chief Justice of Pakistan, who is determined to serve the national and people’s interest, should also take notice of the oppression of circular debt.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri stated this while talking to members of the Central Core Committee of the party on telephone yesterday. He asked as to why the poor are being punished for costlier power agreements, corruption of past rulers, obsolete transmission & distribution system, exorbitant profiteering, overbilling, and the line losses? He said that difference between governance of the past corrupt rulers and the caretaker administration should be seen. He said that the practice of blindly shifting the burden on the people should be changed.
The PAT leader said that the people need to be given relief and their hopes should not be dashed. He said that we decided not to take part in elections because the system cannot benefit the people. He said that the system is founded on the pillars of rigging, corruption and exploitation. He said that the parties with anti-Pakistan agenda will get a chance to play out openly under the current system. National security will get attacked and the people will be further divided along different factions.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri further stated that if any member or office holder of MQI or PAT or any of the subordinate members tried to extend cooperation to the ticketholders of the killer party directly or indirectly, strict action will be taken. He said that it is a final policy matter and no explanation of any kind will be accepted. He said that the Sharifs shed the blood of innocent people in Model Town and took vindictive action against an organization that has been spreading the light of knowledge and peace in the world. They also made an attempt to change the law that deals with the belief regarding finality of the prophethood in order to please their patrons for the sake of vested interests. They looted the exchequer and committed the worst exploitation of the country. They are a party that ran a defamation campaign against the national security institutions.
Dr Qadri said that the list of the crimes committed by the Sharifs is very long. He said that the faces of the martyred sons and daughters are present in front of his eyes. He said that it is not just political differences but enmity with the Sharif brothers. He said that no worker should try to extend any support to them in any manner. He said that our struggle will continue till we get justice in the form of Qisas.
