Lahore : Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has announced an “Accountability March” from the Punjab capital to Islamabad on September 12 to underline the need for an across the board accountability involving all segments of the society.
Addressing a press conference in the federal capital on Monday, he said that the “40 thieves had ganged up to continue their loot and plunder and the Ali Baba must wake up to check the loot”.
He said a consultative meeting of the lawyers would be held on August 23 in Lahore to consider filing an appeal before the Supreme Court for the trial of all those named in the Panama leaks.
On the occasion, Sirajul Haq also called for making public the reports of the DAWN leaks, the volume ten of the JIT against the Sharif family besides the report of the Model Town killings.
The JI chief said that instead of accepting the court verdict, Nawaz Sharif started a campaign at the G.T. Road and decided not appear before the NAB courts. He however said that if the courts were soft to the elite and hard for the poor, there could be a civil war in the country.
Siraj ul Haq said the PML(N) was terming articles 62 and 63 of the constitution as encroachments and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was consulting different political parties for their deletion. He said that the members of the parliament and assemblies were expected to be Sadiq and Ameen as they were the custodian of the public property. He said that any attempt to drop these articles would be resisted with full force.
He said the non appearance of Nawaz Sharif and his family before he NAB courts proved that the allegations against them were true. He further said that the ousted Prime Minister could not escape from accountability even by leaving the country.
Siraj ul Haq reiterated that the NAB Chairman should be appointed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in consultation with the Chief Justices of the provinces.
