Prime Minister Imran Khan and the foreign ambassadors and their families will be taken to Attock Khurd on the Sir Syed Express.
Sheikh Rasheed predicted that if Narendra Modi fails to achieve the desired number of votes in the ongoing polls, India is likely to amplify its efforts of terrorism through its networks in Pakistan.
The Federal Minister for Railways added that after returning from his visits to China and Iran, Prime Minister Imran Khan will attend a luncheon in Rawalpindi. He stated that it will be a great honor for Pakistan Railways that Imran Khan will be travelling in the Sir Syed Express.
While commenting on the verdicts of bail petitions, Sheikh Rasheed quoted an interview by Aitzaz Ahsan, senior PPP leader, and law expert, who had also criticized the verdicts issued on these bail appeals. The Federal Minister of Railways stressed that even Ahsan, who is an expert on Pakistani and international laws, has stated that there is no example of such verdicts in bail petitions throughout the world.
Threat from India if Modi Loses the Election
While commenting on the Indian general elections and threat emanating from India, Sheikh Rasheed predicted that if Narendra Modi fails to achieve the desired number of votes in the ongoing polls, India is likely to amplify its efforts of terrorism through its networks in Pakistan.
He predicted, “If Modi does not succeed in grabbing the number of votes he desires, India will attempt to ignite terrorism through its networks in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa”. However, he stressed that Pakistan is a sovereign nation and Prime Minister Imran Khan will succeed in gaining control over all these challenges and threats.
