Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim has stressed that the plan for building the fair modern state, which is shouldered by the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche, represents the key and the basic prelude for solving the country’s problems and scoring major achievements, stressing that Iraq is our destiny in which we believe for the interest of which we labor, emphasizing the confidence and the ability to face the challenges and achieve the Iraqi people’s legitimate goals. He explained that the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche has a vision and a clear national plan, not just casual transitional ideas.
This came up in the speech of the Head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq (ISCI) which he delivered during his meeting with organizations of the Supreme Council in Diwaniyya on Thursday, November 1, 2012.
His Eminence renewed the reminding of the domestic and foreign challenges facing Iraq in the coming phase, stressing the necessity for these challenges prompting the organizations of the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche to be more vigilant and prepared since they target the Iraqi citizen.
His Eminence pointed out to the subject of the approaching governorate council elections, drawing attention to not looking at the electoral entitlement through the logic of winning or losing as much as looking at it as it represents the hopes and aspirations of the citizens of the Iraqi people, its reaching the safe havens and the achieving of happiness and stability. He explained that before the sons of the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche are two responsibilities: organizing their internal ranks, bearing the responsibility towards the future developments and explaining and detailing the plan and the vision of the Martyr of the Niche for building Iraq and for its advancement.
His Eminence explained that the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche is worthy of the trust of the citizens of the Iraqi people since it has the bright history, the vision, the plan and the ability to carry out the plan. He further explained that the plan of the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche in building the fair modern state hinges on putting strategies, on not going ahead with transitional decision, and that there should be a real knowledge of the people’s needs, in addition to the existence of a clear plan for solving the problems and difficulties in every governorate of the country.
Regarding the general political situation in the country, His Eminence pointed out that the Supreme Council has saved the government from the withdrawal of the vote of confidence due to its realization that what is coming is the unknown, that the plan for the New Iraq was in jeopardy, stressing that the defense of the political plan does not mean full endorsement of the performance of the government, explaining that criticizing the government is a kind criticism and is keen about correcting the ideas and restoring the governmental performance to the right track. He added saying, “We are not those who bargain we are not those who extort the government, and we are not those who are hypocritical with the government. We are frank and clear, and we have one stance publicly and privately.”
Development of Diwaniyya
His Eminence stressed the effort of the Supreme Council and of that of the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche to develop the Diwaniyya governorate through the following:
1. building the neglected factories and making them among the largest of Iraq’s factories. These factories have the ability to turn into major factories that support the entire Iraqi economy and provide real work opportunities for the Diwaniyya residents.
2. putting a plan for land reformation of more than two million acres of neglected arable lands which are not now planted, and these will provide a significant economic boost for the Diwaniyya residents. The plan will put a large number of citizens to work and will connect people to their land and soil. It will turn Diwaniyya into an important station in the Iraqi economy and in its food security in its entirety and not only for the Diwaniyya residents.
3. building a network of roads that connect Diwaniyya with the five governorates that surround it and let Diwaniyya restore its strategic location in the heart of this network and in these many governorates so Diwaniyya may be a basic source and station for movement, for the transport of goods and for a great economic boom in the region that sets out of Diwaniyya and covers the entire mid-Euphrates area.
4. developing the Diwaniyya University and making it an advanced one that produces scientists as Diwaniyya deserves and with major economic development projects in the coming days.
