Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has rejected the agreement with the IMF and said the government had pledged the country with the IMF for a few billion dollars.

Addressing the central leaders of the JI at Mansoora, he said that economic policies of the government were not in the interest of the country and the nation but were only advancing the IMF agenda.

He announced that after Eidul Fitr, the JI would hold countrywide protest against IMF’s open interference in the country’s affairs. Sirajul Haq said that the government had neither placed the agreement before the parliament nor sought suggestions from anyone in this regard. The government itself was lowering the image of the parliament through its conduct, he added.

JI Secretary General, Amirul Azeem, JI deputy chiefs and oher party leaders were also present on the occasion. The JI chief said that if the agreement was implemented, eight million more people would go below the poverty line within a few years. He said that the further increase in the prices of gas, POL and electricity besides direct taxes would hit the poor masses most.
