LAHORE: Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed on Saturday termed suspending negotiations to settle political disputes as “undemocratic”, while hinting at possible deal with Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl’s (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman – who has planned anti-government agitation called Azadi March by the end of October.
Rasheed held a press conference and stated ironically: “Even if all chaudharies die, Maulana cannot come into power.”
“The sit-in is still in the grey list the JUI-F has still not talked of holding a sit-in,” he said, while claiming that Rehman’s political career would end “on the signals of those who have asked him to play.”
“This time, if an attempt is made to strike democracy, decisions will be made immediately my request was heard lately, but Prime Minister Imran Khan formed a committee for negotiating with opposition parties,” he said.
“Seminaries are minarets of the religion and I do support them Maulana went to the Golden Temple but never paid a visit to Qaid-e-Azam’s shrine,” he added.
The minister further mentioned that PM Khan and the army chief “are two wheels of a same car”.
He claimed that former rulers were responsible for inflation in the state and currently the economy has been improving.
