KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi Chief Hafiz Naeemur Rehman has given call for citywide shutdown on September 19, Tuesday to protest against inflation and inflated electricity bills.

Addressing press conference, Hafiz Naeemur Rehman appealed Karachiites for an allout protest in city on September 19 by jamming all major arteries in Karachi. Later in day, JI leader also presided sit-in protest at Shahrah-e-Faisal.

Reduce petroleum products prices or face music, JI leader told caretaker government at press conference held at Idara Noor-e-Haq, JI Karachi headquarters here. Later in day, JI leader also presided sit-in protest on Shahrah-e-Faisal.

Speaking at presser, he said that youth would take to 15 designated points on Tuesday evening and jam all designated points by turning off their vehicles.

JI leader strongly lambasted caretaker government and dubbed it continuation of legacy of previous coalition government, press release read.

He said that caretaker government has increased PoL prices for third time in just single month. He added that raising PoL and electricity prices at time when dollar has been losing its value was quite illogical.

Rulers should have realised that people are on brink of their tolerance. He said that country has been run by mafias and mafias will be first ones to escape if country defaults.

He said that silence by victims support oppressors. He said that masses will have to come forward for their due rights.

He said that new Chief Justice of Supreme Court of Pakistan has assumed office and it would be his test if he takes his first notice on PoL prices and decides in favour of masses or not. Hafiz Naeem further said that party will also write letter to Chief Justice in this regard.

He demanded caretaker Prime Minister to curtail subsidiaries and luxuries offer to elite in public sector. He demanded him to use 1000 CC car if he is sincere to masses and same should be followed by judges and generals.
