Siraj ul Haq blamed local sardars for dire state of Balochistan

QUETTA: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Siraj ul Haq on Thursday accused the local ‘sardars’ of being responsible for the dire state of Balochistan.

Addressing workers in Quetta, the JI chief said that over 65 per cent of all development projects in Balochistan fall victim to corruption.

“There are no hospitals or schools in the province as corrupt leadership has been imposed on the province,” he said.

He said that his party will introduce a fair and just system if voted to power.

The JI chief said that the Pakistan People’s Party and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz are blaming each other but they are the two sides of the same coin.
