Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad, Federal Minister of Railways of Pakistan, has said that the international forces are fully backing Nawaz Sharif. While speaking with Shaheb Khanzada in his show Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath on Geo News, the minister explained the overall context in which Nawaz is propagating against the security institutions and fulfilling the interests of the country’s enemies.
There is a predominant view that when the incumbent government has adequately tackled the COVID-19 challenge and attempted to upgrade the economy, Nawaz’s attempt to topple the same raises an eyebrow.
Moreover, analysts also point out that India in involved in destabilizing Pakistan with the help of separatist elements in Pakistan. Politicians should, opine senior analysts, remain careful if their narrative is being influenced by the Indian lobby. G. M Pitafi, a Lahore-based academic, argues that Nawaz’s recent statements are a reminder of the fact that “for politicians what matters is power”.

In an interview with journalist Nadeem Malik on Samaa TV, Khan claimed that the relations between his government and the military are the “best in history” because all institutions are working in their relevant spheres.
“This is a dangerous game Nawaz is playing; Altaf Hussain played the same game,” PM Khan warned, adding that he was “100 percent” sure that India was helping the PML-N leader.
