Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad, the Railways Minister has said on Friday that the opposition and its leaders are weak. They will never resign nor stage a sit-in against the PTI government.
The Railway Minister went on to praise Imran Khan and highlighted that PM Khan is committed to finish corruption from Pakistan.
While addressing a press briefing in Lahore, Sheikh Rasheed said that the meeting between COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa and opposition party leaders has brought chaos in the country’s politics.
“It is an honor to meet army’s top brass but opposition parties gave a different color to the matter,” said the railways’ minister.
“If I make telephone data and call records of political leaders public, it will result in chaos in the country.”
While talking regarding the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, Rasheed had blamed Nawaz’s daughter Maryam Nawaz for his destroyed political career.
“I don’t blame anyone but it is Maryam Nawaz who destroyed Nawaz Sharif’s political career.”
Talking about the Main Line-1 (ML-1) project, Rasheed said that the government is working to improve the railways’ condition and standard with the help of China.
“After the coronavirus outbreak, railways have been facing a financial crisis but we hope to overcome it,” said Rasheed.
The Railways Minister highlighted that the ML-1 project will boost the country’s economic activities as well as will provide jobs to the unemployed.
The minister said the ML-1 is the most important project of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
“The mega project is important for the welfare and social uplift of people, especially the railways’ employees.”
