Energy crisis has exposed uplift claims: Siraj

LAHORE: Jamaat-i-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq says the acute energy crisis in the country has exposed the false claims of the development made by the erstwhile rulers.

Talking to different delegations at Mansoora on Wednesday, he said the masses were facing worst loadshedding even at Sehar and Iftar times in the sizzling heat while the outgoing rulers were most shamelessly saying that they were not responsible for the energy crisis and the caretakers were to be blamed for that.

The JI chief said no major dam was built in the country during the last several years which had resulted in severe water shortage and acute energy crisis and the nation had to face the consequences.
