JUP for fortifying economy to save future of coming generations

LAHORE:Collective efforts are needed to strengthen national economy to save future of the coming generations.

Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan (JUP) President Pir Ijaz Hashmi said this while addressing a gathering of the party workers here on Monday.

He said that the financial difficulties make countries weak on all fronts and they have to take instructions from others; therefore, everyone should play his role towards stability of the national economy.

National sovereignty is linked with economic stability, he added.

He said that some politicians are issuing such a statements which are not good. They should realise their responsibilities and show patience and wisdom in the larger interest of the country.

Hashmi said: “Scarcity of financial resources is very important issue and it should be resolved instead of indulging in political point scoring and making attempts to malign each other.”

It’s a pity that we have to borrow more money from world financial institutes to pay installments of our existing loans, he said.

He said that permanent and long-term solutions to economic issues of the country should be worked out through developing close liaison between the relevant institutions.

He also stressed the need for taking austerity measures at all levels to save funds.
