KARACHI: The Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) has reiterated its demand for deployment of army troops at polling stations in Karachi to ensure fair and transparent elections.
Speaking at an election rally at Bagh-i-Jinnah here on Sunday, JI leaders said that fair and transparent elections were necessary for getting Karachi rid of target killing and extortion.
They warned that if army troops were not deployed in Karachi the ‘thappa mafia’ would hijack the polls.
JI Amir Syed Munawar Hassan said the future of the country was linked to fair elections.
Terming US intervention in the affairs of Pakistan the biggest problem faced by it, Mr Hassan said those who called themselves ‘liberal’ were in fact the supporters of the US policies and those who opposed US intervention were being called ‘conservatives’.
