MULTAN - Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Secretary General of Liaqat Baloch declared on Tuesday that the upcoming sit-in on December 25 against increasing American intervention in Pakistan would prove a historic event and it would help Pakistan get rid of US.

“The motive behind holding this sit-in is to create public opinion on this issue. We hope that beside JI workers, general public will also participate in the sit-in,” he added while delivering a telephonic address to the JI workers, who were gathered at Darul Salaam.

He said that the power crisis had turned worse as 18 hour long power outages shut down entire industry in the country. He said that agriculture was also at the verge of complete destruction because of increase in its inputs’ prices. He said that the tariffs of electricity, Sui gas and LPG were revised every second day as a result of which price hike went out of control and crushed poor masses.

He said that the government had made a promise with the people that it would recover missing persons and implement parliament’s resolutions on national security. “Neither have they recovered missing persons nor implemented resolutions. Now the people have a very strong impression that the rulers have no vision and they act upon American agenda,” he maintained.
