MULTAN - The activists of Jamaat-e-Islami staged a demonstration against gas and electricity loadshedding as well as price hike here at Bahar Chowk on Friday. The protest was organised in connection with a call given by Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Syed Munawar Hassan and a large number of JI workers as well as common citizens participated in it. Holding placards and banners inscribed with their demands, the protesters shouted slogans against the government. A severe traffic jam took place on Masoom Shah Road because of demonstration but the protesters vacated the road when an ambulance suddenly honked its sirens. Speaking on the occasion, JI Punjab naib Ameer Ch Uzair Latif, Rao Zafar Iqbal, Prof Iftikhar Ch and others said that the rulers completely failed on all fronts as a result of which the miseries of the public multiplied. They added that PTI could not make any difference as it was old vine in new bottle. They said that the country possessed plenty of resources and it only lacked sincere, honest and patriot leadership. They said that Javed Hashmi and Shah Mahmood did nothing for the people of Multan and therefore masses would reject them too. They said that the PPP and Nawaz League were two sides of the same coin as both of them befooled the people. They demanded the government to resign and announce new elections in the country.
