TIMERGARA: Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) on Tuesday demanded the federal government to maintain the status of the Malakand division as a tax-free zone till 2035 as unemployment had increased manifold besides price hike and decrease in remittances from the Gulf countries due to uncertain situation. Speaking at opening ceremony of a shoe store at Timergara, JI chief Sirajul Haq said the “incompetent” government had mortgaged the country with the International Monetary Fund , which he called a new shape of “East India Company” for Pakistan.
