Dr Hussain said that 80% of the people do not have access to clean drinking water. He said that the process of getting justice is long drawn out and the judges are worried on the high costs involved in terms of time in dispensation of justice. He said that the role which Parliament was required to play in terms of legislation is til missing and it is the people who are paying the heavy cost of this negligence.

The MQI President lamented that the situation of the country was not as bad soon after establishment of the country as it is now. He said that newly created state of Pakistan was no doubt poor country but it was not dependent on others, adding that today’s Pakistan has been getting bogged down in the marsh of debts and loans.

Dr Hussain said that democracy with its responsibilities and rights is the best system in the world. He said that those who use democracy to get into power have forgotten their duties. He said that the people of Pakistan can set the direction of the governments, adding that they should not remain silent spectators on corruption and criminality committed by the governments. He said that if the people do not speak for their own rights, no one will.
