Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Saturday called the opposition’s All Parties Conference (APC) a failure and said that former premier Nawaz Sharif closed all options for return to Pakistan after his address in the moot, reported Geo News.
While talking to a Geo News Anchor in programme ‘Naya Pakistan’, Rashid questioned Nawaz Sharif’s credibility while he spoke out against the establishment, even though the fact remains that he was brought into power by former military ruler Zia Ul Haq, and also added “PML-N supremo will now take political asylum in the UK”.
Nawaz says absence of democracy is cause for government failure
Nawaz Sharif castigated Prime Minister Imran Khan’s administration for failing to govern the country while implementing a truly democratic system. Nawaz Sharif claimed that the root cause of the problems plaguing this country was because the nation had been deprived of a truly democratic system and the Constitution also states that the opinion of the general public be respected highlighting the spirit of democracy. “This is the principle of democracy in the world when the democracy is hit, the whole democratic system becomes meaningless,” he had said.
Rashid stated that Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s call for resignations from assemblies was muted by the APC. “The expressions on the faces of Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Shehbaz Sharif at the APC were worth watching,” he said.
The federal minister was of the opinion that the army has no interest in administrative matters and claimed that Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has clarified to the political leaders to arrange the Gilgit-Baltistan elections by themselves as the military is not interested in such tasks.
