Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Secretary General Liaqat Baloch has said that by-elections results all over the country are a great setback for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

In a statement, the JI secretary general said that the ruling party had lost the seats vacated by the Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan although the opposition party candidates had to contest on an uneven electoral field. He further said that the government should review its policies.

He said that the government should consider the results of the by-election as a warning as the price hike, unemployment, the fiery statements of the ministers and the wrong decisions of the government were adding to the wrath of the public.

Addressing the participants of the JI central workshop at Mansoora, Liaqat Baloch said that the state of Madina could not be built in the presence of the interest-based economic system.

He said that performance of the government during its first fifty days indicated that the tall promises made by PM Imran Khan about an economic revolution were hollow and the PTI had not done any homework for that.
