Opposition parties had failed in their agenda against the PTI govt: Sheikh Rashid
ISLAMABAD ( Web News )
Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Wednesday has said that a no-trust move “shakes the foundation of a country” and isn’t an easy task.
Sheikh Rashid Ahmed made the remarks during a function at the National Institute of Fire and Technology in Islamabad. He was referring to the opposition parties’ talks of moving a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The minister maintained that the opposition parties had failed in their agenda against the PTI government and that the no-trust motion being proposed by them still had a long way to go.
Speaking about the ongoing Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) anti-government march, Sheikh Rashid reiterated that he remained unconcerned about it but said that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) should reconsider their long march scheduled on March 23 as Pakistan Day celebrations will be underway.
He said that a fleet of 25 J17C planes will have a “fly-past” on March 23 and that there will be a “historic parade” on March 22 and 23.
Additionally, the minister stated that Pakistan was moving towards a more neutral foreign policy under the leadership of PM Imran Khan. He stated that the country should aim to organise itself further on matters of foreign relations.
Commenting on the premier’s recent relief package announcement, Sheikh Rashid said that the poor people of the country were given relief for the “first time”. “Now, the prices of oil and sugar should also be lowered,” he remarked.
The minister claimed that the opposition was speaking against poor people getting relief by criticising the subsidy package.
Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said Prime Minister Imran Khan has won the hearts of poor people by giving historical relief package.
The Interior Minister said the opposition parties can not succeed to achieve their set goals and the PTI government would complete its constitutional term.
Sheikh Rashid said Australian team was threatened by sending fake messages and tried to sabotage its tour to Pakistan like they had done with New Zealand cricket team.
