Federal Minister of Railways Sheikh Rasheed said that he was not in favor of filing treason case (Article 6) against Jamiat Uleima-e-Islam leader Fazal-ur-Rehman for an attempt to fall over the government during his March last year. Sheikh Rasheed said, “This time, [the government] will behave differently with the marchers,”

Sheikh Rasheed, while talking to media today, threatened JUI-F leader of the results this time if he tries to organize a sit-in in Islamabad.

While talking about the matter of recovering the railways land from encroachment, Sheikh Rasheed said that not all of the property was being recovered but “areas of 50ft.”

“The sale of properties will reduce the railways’ deficit.”

He added that he will meet chief minister Murad Ali Shah to solve the matters regarding the clearing of tracks of Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) from encroachment.

“The Supreme Court has allowed selling the properties in Karachi, [I have] pledged with the public to reduce railways’ deficit within five years.”

On the other hand, JUI-F has challenged the prime minister to file a case against leader Fazal-ur-Rehman as opposition lawmakers condemned PM’s call for trying Fazal-ur-Rehman under Article 6 of the constitution.

JUI-F lawmaker Maulana Asad Mehmood said, “I’m challenging Imran Khan to go ahead and try him under Article 6,”

“A treason case should have been filed against the prime minister for speaking against the state institutions during his US and Iran tours.”

PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that PTI was creating a fabricated treason case against Fazal-ur-Rehman and Khwaja Asif.

He said, “The government would stoop to a new low in the victimization of its political rivals if it goes ahead,”

However, PML-N member Khwaja Asif said, “Does the government want to muzzle all voices of dissent? Article 6 should be invoked against those who stormed parliament and attacked democracy,”

“It’s disappointing that Ehsanullah Ehsan has been allowed to escape, while politicians are thrown into jails.”
