Rabat- Secretary General of the Independence Party Hamid Chabat called Benkirane’s government of Benkirane “the Religion Dealers”, accusing them of stealing the dreams of the Moroccan people.
Following criticism and a series of attacks against the government by the Independence Party, the party’s secretary general called the Justice and Development Party (PJD) “the religion dealers” while he was chairing the 5th Session of the Central Committee in Rabat.
Chabat pointed his finger at the government, accusing the PJD of using the “Arab Spring” to take power and stealing the Moroccan people’s dreams, Assahah reported.
According to the same source, Chabat claimed that the government is leading Moroccans to the “precipice.”
Expanding on his theory, Chabat explained that the economic, social and political indexes give clear signs that Morocco’s situation is “worrying” and it will be “worse” in the future.
In particular, the government diminishes citizens’ ability to weather the economic crises by increasing the prices of staple goods.
In this regard, Chabat accused the government of bowing to the orders of the financial institutions, “ignoring” the workers unions’ demands to increase staff wages, and increasing the prices of staple goods, including fuel and subsidized flour prices”.
Chabat added that Morocco has become a “hostage” in the hands of international financial institutions, after the government strained the country’s resources with huge amounts of external loans.
This has pushed Moroccans to “a precipice by causing a national economical crisis,” Chabat warned.
The Secretary General of the Independence Party concluded that the Moroccan people still have the chance to take back their “stolen dreams” and hopes by following the “True Moroccan Spring” – referring his party’s campaign against the government – “that will continue until Moroccans take back their dreams.”
