QUETTA: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Secretary General Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri has said the incumbent government remained unable to deliver during the first 100 days and instead of providing relief, people are being rendered unemployed.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government through its wrong policies plunged the country into a financial crisis as dollar rates hiked overnight and the prime minister was not aware of that situation, the JUI-F leader told a press conference on Sunday.

Haideri said the government soon after coming into power enhanced the gas and electricity prices manifold, which hit the people hard. He said that with the rupee depreciation the quantum of foreign loans has increased.

He also said that a government which promised to build five million low-cost houses for the people was demolishing the existing houses instead.

The JUI-F leader said that his party is not against accountability but it cannot support accountability of one party, one family and that of political opponents. “The PTI-led government is targeting one political party and a family,” Haideri said, adding that political revenge was unacceptable.

He claimed that in the ongoing situation created by the PTI due to its wrong policies, opposition could bring in-house change. He said that the opposition parties have been holding consultation on the issue.

Pashtunkhwa Mili Awami Party (PkMAP) Senator Usman Kakar, Balochistan Assembly opposition leader Advocate Malik Sikandar Khan, Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) Vice President Malik Wali Kakar, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Jamal Shah Kakar, Shar Gul Khilji, and other party leaders were present on the occasion.
