Addressing a women convention in the city on Thursday, he said that the women constituted over fifty per cent of the country’s population and their votes to the really deserving candidate in the next elections would play an important role in bringing about a change.
Highlighting the salient features of the JI election manifesto, Liaqat Baloch said that the JI would ensure a judicious distribution of the national wealth and resources in the society, and the national resources would be diverted towards the masses through the Zakat, and charity and donations. The evils of usury, hoarding, drinking and adulteration would be wiped out and the national economy would be built on healthy footings that would usher in an era of progress and prosperity. The discrimination between the rulers and the ruled would be eliminated and the protocol and lavish living of the rulers on state expense would be wiped out.
Meanwhile, a minority candidate for the NA seat, Mehmud Gill, called on Liaqat Baloch along with his supporters, and assured him of full support of the Christian community in the area. He lauded the JI’s role for the rights of the minorities.
