Federal Minister for the Pakistan Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has criticized opposition that the opposition has been exposed through Financial Action Task Force (FATF) issue.

In a recent address to media after inaugurating a new building of the women’s college in Rawalpindi, Sheikh Rasheed said that the government has not faced defeat regarding the FATF issue, but it is the opposition which has been exposed.

He also said that the only demand of opposition is to dissolve the National Accountability Bureau.

“Fazal-ur-Rehman asked some pinching question from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif and expressed a lack of confidence in him during yesterday’s meeting. The only demand of the opposition is to dissolve the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

In addition to this, he also talked about the cabinet’s decision extradition of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. “I am standing with the cabinet’s decision of extradition of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif but I do not think he will return as there is no such contract between Pakistan and England. Prime Minister Imran Khan achieves everything which he attempts.

“Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar is not going anywhere. Karachi and Lahore are inundated by rainwater and people are cursing the parliamentarians. Karachiites are shedding tears of blood as the rains wreaked havoc in the metropolis.

“Rs 70 billion is being spent on Lai Nullah and I am thankful to Usman Buzdar that he gave priority to this project. Roads on both sides of the nullah will be made and plazas up to eight stories will be allowed across it” he added.

Apart from that, Rasheed lashed out at Pakistan Peoples Party. He said that the party did not spend money at the hospital where Benazir Bhutto died.

“I came back from the brink of death after contracting coronavirus and worked as much as I could. The maternity hospital is 70 percent completed. Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) did not spend a penny at the hospital where Benazir Bhutto died.

“Tenders of the Main Line-1 (ML-1) project will be announced with a delay of five days on August 31. I thank PM Imran Khan and Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa for the project.

“The railway track will be changed after 150 years since its formation in 1886. I want to make another university in the city. I steal maps wherever I go and had stolen fourteen maps of operation theaters from a hospital of Manchester.”
