Religious leaders call the cabinet changing faces into eye wash
LAHORE: Religious leaders said Tuesday that only a reshuffle of key ministers involved in corruption equals the nation’s duping in the name of accountability, demanding that the culprits be fired, ordered under the NAB law and arrested immediately to prevent them from influencing the investigation.
Senator Amer Jamaat-e-Islami Sirajul Haq said the reshuffle in the cabinet was not a punishment but an eyewash and actually meant providing new opportunities for corruptors to loot and pillage public treasury.
Speaking with The News, he said, it was a test for Prime Minister Imran Khan to punish them meticulously because he had promised the nation for the past 10 years, but he failed the test. Siraj demanded that all ministers, party leaders, bureaucrats who formulate and implement the ministers’ policies, be equally guilty and must be ordered in the NAB case. Most importantly, the cabinet led by the prime minister approved subsidies, so he could not free himself as the culprit. Siraj demanded that all the money looted must be immediately recovered from them before they were transferred to another account, and should be used for corona aid.
JUI-F center spokesman and former Senator, Hafiz Hussain Ahmad said that although portfolio changes are not a punishment, it proves that they are the perpetrators and Imran Khan has taken another round by saving them and allowing them to do more corruption in a new place. service.
Speaking with The News, he said, a reshuffle of ministers proved that the FIA report was true, but Imran Khan had taken the same action he had accused of Nawaz Sharif for the past 10 years. He said the country had seen PTI’s standards of justice with its own corrupt ministers, adding that Imran avoided the suspects because any action against them would demand its own accountability as the country’s chief executive who agreed with the ministry’s recommendations. corrupt minister. He demanded that all those involved in the fraud must be ordered under NAV and immediately imprisoned. He said Imran Khan had previously rescued a minister involved in billions of corruption rupees in fixing prices for illegal drugs and disrupting the lives of the poor, by only expelling him from the ministry without giving any punishment.
Hafiz Hussain Ahmad warned that Imran Khan tightened the grip of people who were not representative of the elected parliament, and appointing Babar Awan who was not elected as an advisor to parliamentary affairs was an open affront to parliamentary institutions and millions of voters in the country.
President Jamiat Ahle Hadith, Senator Sajid Mir accused the PM of setting a new standard of nepotism by covering up the massive corruption of his cronies, even though he had strongly accused the previous corruption regime. Speaking with The News, he said it was time for Imran Khan to rid the country of all the corrupt people who were seated in the ranks of his party and government, and give them exemplary punishments as he had promised the nation. He demanded that all corrupt ministers be dismissed, ordered under the NAB and arrested so they could not influence the investigation process.
Islamic President Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) and leader Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadith (MJAH) Allama Zubair Ahmad Zaheer said that by releasing ministers and party leaders proven to have looted billions of public money through organized corruption, the Prime Minister proved himself worse than himself. the predecessors who looted public money without lifting Riasat-e-Medina slogans.
Speaking to The News, he said, the prime minister had completely deceived the people by only changing their ministries, adding that if it was a punishment then Imran Khan had to change his own status because he was the one who had agreed to all corrupt practices and
policies that have been made by the ministers. He said the PTI leadership had been as openly as corrupt as its predecessors who were accused of massive corruption over the past 20 years.
JUP Vice-President Qari Zawwar Bahadur said that without filing a NAB case and removing ministers involved in corruption, how could the PM justify that he was different from his predecessor whom he accused of looting national finance.
He said Imran Khan proved he was following in the footsteps of previous rulers who he never tired of accusing looting public money through such tactics used by his own cabinet ministers now. He said the country would never consider it a punishment until Imran dismissed the ministers accused, arrested them and started an investigation by the NAB.
