Lahore: Secretary General, Jamaat e Islami, Liaqat Baloch, candidate from NA 126 in the Punjab capital, has said that the JI on coming to power, would introduce death sentence for corruption, retrieve the wealth lying in foreign banks, and confiscate all ill-gotten jagirs and utilize these for public good.
Addressing corner meetings in different parts of his constituency on Tuesday, he said that the general elections would play a decisive role for the country and the nation and the correct use of the vote would open the path for progress and prosperity.
Liaqat Baloch said that the strength and progress of Pakistan lay in the Islamic ideology and the enforcement of the Islamic system.
The JI leader said that change of political loyalties, demolition of moral values for securing party tickets, corruption and incompetence of the rulers had weakened the state
and the society and in the present scenario, the JI alone could ensure progress and prosperity to the country and strengthen the country.
A minority candidate from a PA seat, Shahid Gulzar, called on Liaqat Baloch with hundreds of his supporters. The two candidates vowed to work for the supremacy of the constitution and the law, the wellbeing of the people as also the security of the masses and all places of worship.
