RAWALPINDI - Accusing the current government of entirely neglecting the education sector, Ameer Jamat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan Siraj ul Haq said that the ruling party has only been interested in making money and paid no heed to improving education in the country.

He said that every government makes tall claims for bringing betterment in the education sector but never allocates an amount for that purpose in the budget.

“It is a matter of shame that the government could not build any school or university in Rawalpindi in the last four years,” he said.

Ameer JI expressed these views while addressing the convention of Islami Jamiat Talba (IJT) at Liaquat Bagh here on Wednesday. The convention was attended by a large number of students.

Siraj ul Haq, said that Liauqat Bagh has significant importance in the political history of Pakistan as the blood of first Prime Minister of Pakistan Khan Liaquat Ali Khan was shed here. He said that JI has a comprehensive plan for improving education in the country.

“If JI comes into power, the government will bear the education expenses in all the government educational institutions,” he said.

He said the government is disobeying orders of Supreme Court of Pakistan of enforcing Urdu as official language in all the offices.

Commenting on the state of healthcare in the country, Siraj ul Haq said that if the ex Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif had built any state of the art hospital in Pakistan, his wife would not have to go abroad for medical treatment.
