Fazl has a one-on-one meeting with Gen Bajwa: Sh Rasheed | Instant News

FAISALABAD: Railway Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad on Thursday claimed that Jamiat Ulama-e-Islam (JUI-F) chairman Maulana Fazlur Rehman had a one-on-one meeting with Army Chief of Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa. He challenged that he was prepared to divulge details of the one-on-one meeting between Fazl and Bajwa in Lahore if Maulana dared to deny it. He expressed surprise at the commotion and cries over the meeting and asked if it was not an honor to meet the commander of the armed forces. He accused the JUI-F chairman of wanting to increase sectarian divisions in the country.

Sh Rashid challenged the opposition leadership to step down from the assembly so they could know about their position among the masses in the next election. Sh Rashid claimed that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari would never vote for resignation from the assembly because that would be the final nail in his party’s political coffin.

He said the PPP would lose its last stronghold, because after submitting to resign, they would never rule even in Sindh.

He said that the PPP was responsible for the plight of the poor in Sindh where they were forced to drink polluted water because the party failed to provide basic facilities for the Sindh community.

The railway minister said the opposition party’s sole aim was to create obstacles for Prime Minister Imran Khan to gaining a majority in the Senate following a vote scheduled for March 2021.

Commenting on Nawaz Sharif’s speech, he said he dug up his own grave by making negative comments against the Pakistan Army. He said the so-called opposition APC movement would fail in the next four months. He called APC’s claims a joke with the Pakistani people because the main political parties participating in APC have remained in power for the past 30 years and they are responsible for the country’s inflation, poverty and illiteracy.

“I will now expose a political leader every week from now onwards,” he said. Sh Rashid said the prime minister is a beacon of truth in the country and wants to reform the country and lead it towards progress and prosperity.

He said it was ironic that some employees who earn nearly Rs16,000 in wages find billions of rupees in their accounts. In fact, the corruptors use the bank accounts of the poor to launder money and make the country even poorer.

Responding to Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s statement that he would not attend the meeting to be attended by Sheikh Rashid, he said: “I was in politics before Bilawal’s birth. I worked with senior politician Nawabzada Nasrullah Khan for the cause of Kashmir and I will continue to serve the nation as long as the people elect me to power. “

He appreciated the role of Pak Army and said that organized institutions not only guard the geographic boundaries of the country but also help the civilian government in overcoming natural disasters.

He said that Nawaz Sharif had remained silent for the past year, while Maryam Nawaz’s twitter had remained dry for 10 months. The reason behind their silence was because they wanted to fulfill their old demand for the NRO [secret deal].

However, Prime Minister Imran Khan remained steadfast and refused to provide assistance to the looters and looters, who once again hoped for another royal treatment. He said that Imran Khan was the elected civilian prime minister and the army fully supported him as stated in the Pakistan Constitution.

Sh Rashid said PML-N was on the verge of breaking up and soon “N” would give birth to “Sheen”. He said that the APC was a failed politician meeting and he would arrange a public meeting in the same city the next day where APC would organize its protest meeting.

About Faisalabad, he said that it is one of the most important cities in Pakistan that generates enough funds for the country. He announced Rs20 million for repair and renovation of Faisalabad Railway Station.

Earlier, Federal Parliament Secretary for Railways Mian Farrukh Habib also addressed the conference and said that visible improvements would be made to the railways soon. He said the PM had an interest in improving the railway system because it was important to strengthen the national economy.
