LAHORE - Jamaat-e-Islami secretary general Liaqat Baloch has warned the democratic forces would lose the control if failed to establish a powerful system of accountability.

Addressing a press conference at the Lahore Press Club yesterday, he said the parliament and the masses would have to be on the same page to ensure a thorough accountability.

“Change is unlikely by sitting at home, and criticising others for not protesting on roads,” Baloch said while urging the masses to unite against the corrupt elite.

“Corruption got roots in Pakistan because the corrupt forces have been protecting each other.”

Baloch said the government and the opposition would have to agree at the ToRs in order to carry ahead the process of accountability. “If they failed in this, the masses may lose patience and the result could be disastrous,” he warned.

He announced schedule of the JI train march in connection with its ‘Corruption-free Pakistan’ movement.

According to the schedule, the train march would begin from Peshawar on May 25 with a public meeting to be addressed by the JI chief Sirajul Haq.

The march would board the Awami Express and reach Lahore the same evening. The JI chief would address rallies at different railway stations on the way including Nowshera, Rawalpindi, Jhelum, Gujrat and Gujranwala.

On May 26, the march would resume by Khyber Mail from Lahore and would travel to Rohri. The JI chief would address the rallies at major stations on the route.

The next day, the train march would move from Rohri by the Awami Express and would reach Karachi in the evening. It would end with a public meeting at Karachi.

Booking have been made while JI central and provincial leadership and at district levels would join the train march.

Meanwhile, a meeting in the JI Media Cell, chaired by JI Information Secretary Ameerul Azim, reviewed the preparations for the Train March and expressed full satisfaction in this respect. The JI has released a one-minute video of its train march on social media.

Thousands of JI workers would see off the march at Peshawar while nearly three hundred party workers would travel in the train from Peshawar to Karachi.

Nazir Ahmed Janjua has been appointed central Coordinator of the train march.
