Sheikh Rashid said that Imran Khan will finish his term of office.
KARACHI (Dunya News) – Pakistan’s Federal Minister of Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said on Saturday that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz are leading politics to a dead end.
The federal minister held a press conference in Karachi and said Prime Minister Imran Khan would complete his term. He said negotiations with the opposition were open to all issues except the NRO and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) case.
Sheikh Rashid praised Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and said he made a strong statement yesterday and acted responsibly. All political parties participated fully in the Gilgit-Baltistan elections and it was necessary to pay attention to whether they – who would lose – would accept their defeat or not, he added.
He said a meeting on railways was held in Karachi today and the agency wanted to reclaim occupied land. The 14-kilometer Karachi Loop Rail (KCR) has been cleared, he said, adding that he hopes the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is extended from Peshawar to Jalalabad.
SKARDU: PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz on Friday lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan, claiming that the prime minister asked for the NRO but the Opposition would not give it to him.
Addressing a rally in the Skardu Gilgit-Baltistan region, Maryam took pictures of the turncoats, referring to them as lotay (plural) included in the bathroom.
(Lota is an Urdu word which by literal definition is a washing jug used in the bathroom and in colloquial language means one who replaces allegiance.)
He told party workers and supporters at the rally not to vote for such people in the upcoming elections.
“Trap this lotay, don’t allow them to hide, “he urged his supporters. Nine PML-N workers were courted to leave the party, he said,” but my youth, promise me you will not vote for this. lotay“.
“Lotay doesn’t belong in the box, this lotay including in the bathroom. This lotay, who were limp under pressure from the selectors and were elected, could not defend the people, “said the PML-N leader.
Maryam Nawaz said those who trample the sanctity of voice cannot serve the people. “Lotay have no right to ask for votes, “he said.
“They have to hide their faces and lock themselves in their homes. The future of my youth is not for them to write something on social media just to be picked up on a dark night.
“Whoever you vote for and whoever is in power through your vote will not be cast out through anyone iqama. Promise me, my youth, that you will protect the servant who comes [into power] through voting, “he told the general meeting participants.
Scoffing at Prime Minister Imran Khan, he said: “A person who has no honor, who carries a begging bowl, who is brought to power and run by someone else, who cannot defend his rights and respect … that person will not stand up for you.
“Those who planned [electoral] cheating, remember that Pakistan has changed in two years. Now, this won’t either lotay nor will those involved in or plotting fraud be spared, “he said.
Maryam Nawaz added that those who have committed wrongdoing in the past will “face public anger and anger led not by Maryam but by you, my youth”.
PML-N leaders told the rally: “I beg Nawaz Sharif, Khaqan Abbasi, Pervez Rasheed and Barjees Tahir not to give tickets to anyone. lotay in the future.”
‘Neither Gilgit-Baltistan nor Pakistan will accept cheating’
He said no one at the rally was given transportation to get in or a chair to sit down. “What lives here is only lust,” he said. “If the PML-N loses due to fraud, neither Gilgit-Baltistan nor Pakistan will accept the result,” he warned.
“Only God’s people will rule now. Pakistan has no way out except Nawaz Sharif. If anyone knows how to solve Pakistan’s problem, it is Nawaz Sharif.”
He lashed out at the prime minister, who arrived in the region days ago to announce that Pakistan was granting temporary provincial status to Gilgit-Baltistan.
“A few days ago, an ‘entertainer’ came to Gilgit-Baltistan. He painted the dream of 10 million jobs but 15 million people were unemployed.
“He used to say he would not develop ‘Bus Jangla’,” he said, referring to the KP government’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project. “But then he succeeded.
“And now the buses are burning every day,” said Maryam. “He was also unable to run the economy, nor could he function properly. He rewarded his friends with wheat and sugar [crises] then formed a commission.
“The advantages of wheat and sugar [crises] into the pockets of those who bear the costs of the Bani Gala, “he added, referring to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s residence near Islamabad.
Maryam Nawaz said the prime minister claimed he would make Gilgit-Baltistan a province but vowed “that the honor is not his to claim”.
“If anyone makes Gilgit-Baltistan a province, it is Nawaz Sharif.
“He kept talking about not giving an NRO, how he ‘wouldn’t give an NRO,’ but now he’s asking us for an NRO. Now he’s not going to get an NRO,” he vowed.
Prime Minister Imran Khan, he said, “was previously known as the elected, now he is the one being rejected”.
Lahore [Pakistan], November 1 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Sunday launched the party’s ‘Sher Jawan’ campaign warning young people against “hybrid governments”. The campaign was launched in a party effort to encourage its young workers to bring about positive change in the country, reports Geo News. Speaking to people at the launch of the campaign, Maryam said: “Sher Jawan is a campaign to remind youth of the reasons behind Pakistan’s creation …. This is a campaign that aims to make youth understand the Constitution, restore their faith in democracy, and warn against it. them against hybrid governments. “ The vice president of PML-N further spoke of ‘slavery’ and said it manifested itself in a movement that “takes away the right to speak, forces people to submit before the powerful, inflicts fear on people, restricts them from claiming their rights and demands . them to keep quiet “. “People are sent to prison when they demand their right – this is slavery,” Maryam quoted Geo News as saying. Referring to the incident in which IG from Sindh was allegedly kidnapped and forced to file an FIR with Maryam’s husband, Captain Safdar, Maryam said: “Slavery was when the inspector general was kidnapped in Karachi and forced to sign Captain Safdar’s (retired) arrest order.” “Are the police lesser creatures? Aren’t they human?” he asked slamming the police authorities. According to Geo News, the PML-N leader said that the ideals that led to the creation of Pakistan had not yet been followed. However, after witnessing the enthusiasm of the audience, he said the country was “in safe hands”. He urged people to read the Constitution and said that even if one demand from PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif was against it, then the people should not support it. “Nawaz Sharif spoke about upholding the Constitution and the oath (taken by military officers),” he said, adding that one should not blame ‘uniforms’. He also stated that when voting is not respected, students will lose laptops and scholarships, which also causes a spike in inflation. An alliance of 11 opposition parties, the Democratic Movement of Pakistan (PDM) has organized three massive rallies in Gujranwala, Karachi and Balochistan as part of a nationwide agitation demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Imran Khan. Previously, police had “arrested” Safdar Awan, from their hotel in Karachi, hours after PML-N vice president attacked Imran Khan and his government during the PDM’s second show of power. “Police broke down the door of my room at the hotel where I was staying in Karachi and arrested Captain Safdar,” Maryam tweeted Monday morning. Several police officers on Tuesday applied for time off to “get out of.” […] the shock “caused by FIR registration and Safdar’s arrest, according to Fajar. (ANI)

If the effectiveness of the Opposition’s rallies against Imran Khan’s government is measured by their ability to be overthrown immediately, then the politics of the past two weeks in Pakistan have failed. The Pakistan Democratic Movement, an alliance of 11 parties opposing Imran Khan’s government, has so far held three rallies, in Gujranwala, Karachi and Quetta. However, if their success is to be measured, more than immediate results or numbers will count, even though all three attract large crowds.
Reporting and discussion on PDM tends to be polarized. If you say anything favorable about the Opposition, particularly PML-N or PPP, you are labeled anti-PTI and anti-government. But in the same way, if you support PTI or the government, you are labeled a failed Company.
In order to avoid a minefield of accusations of being a life journalist, who have taken things under the table, allow me to tell you that my assessment of crowd size is similar to that of other journalists in Quetta and Karachi. We feel that they attract a decent if not good crowd. The journalists covering Quetta said it was imperative that no political party or alliance in recent memory was able to fill the Job Stadium until PDM rally last week.
If this is a litmus test for the Balochistan Opposition, then the political parties tasked with bringing the masses to the Ayub Stadium qualify: JUI-F Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Balochistan National Party from Sardar Akhtar Mengal, Pashtunkhwa Party Milli Awami from Mahmood Khan Achakzai and Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party from Dr Abdul Malik Baloch National Party.
In Karachi, judgments must take into account that this is the home of the PPP and has the power and resources to ensure people attend. Unlike in Quetta, there were no obstacles for people trying to reach the place. And if we judge Gujranwala’s presence, it is important to underline that this city has always been a stronghold of PML-N. Regardless, we saw something there that was unprecedented: one of the biggest names in politics from Punjab challenging military leaders. Indeed, some of the rhetoric is so sharp that it must be rated PG.
If you heard the speech, which was broadcast live uncensored by the party’s independent social media, you would, no matter what your political inclinations, would be surprised. When was the last time any of us heard mainstream political leaders openly expel people from the highest levels in the country? This might have happened during martial law, if it did, but certainly not under any democratic government. If analysts, politicians, or talk show hosts have spoken of electoral engineering, they are referring to the agents of the action in an abstract and euphemistic form: existing power, stakeholders, specific places, even clothing … but never by name. So when Maryam Nawaz did it, bluntly, bluntly, it had a ripple effect with people repeating this argument from Gujranwala to Karachi and from Karachi to Quetta. Someone almost flinched out of fear of retribution upon hearing his words. The newsroom is confused about how much to report.
And indeed, there was retribution. What happened in Karachi the day after the PDM jalsa further emphasized certain points he made about them which we dare not mention. The inspector general of police was picked up because Maryam’s husband, Captain Safdar, must be arrested. The entire top brass, the police, almost gave up in reaction.
Likewise, in Quetta, something unprecedented happened. Maryam Nawaz talks about enforced disappearances. A photo of him holding a poster from a girl’s family went viral. Here is Maryam Nawaz, one of the most powerful politicians of Punjab, wiping the tears of the young Baloch girls. If you ask a lot of people in Balochistan they will say Punjab always gives stepmother treatment. That is why supporters of the nationalist party, especially BNP-M and PKMAP, are happy to see Nawaz Sharif’s empathy.
But is this just taking advantage of good optics, considering that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam had never talked so extensively about Baloch like this before. I asked people outside the Quetta Press Club if they hoped Maryam would find the missing if her party came to power again. They say no but there is hope in their voices. One of the boys, who did not want his photo taken, said missing family members may never come back alive but Maryam and other politicians can ensure this doesn’t happen to anyone else.
The question that everyone is asking after these rallies is whether they will change things. It may be naive to think three rallies could bring down the government. You will have a better chance of hoping it leads to withdrawal of Establishment support to the government.
In an interview with ARY News a few days ago, Prime Minister Imran Khan himself said some members of his party were worried about the protests. So far, however, he has stressed that he is not influenced and will not be blackmailed by the opposition to compromise his anti-corruption agenda. However, one assumes that this is obvious: It is almost impossible for Imran Khan to stay in power if the people and his coalition partners (who fear anti-government rallies and have a history of switching parties) begin to jump. Politicians can be persuaded to jump for several reasons. One of them is what PDM claims is a struggle. As Maryam in Gujranwala said: “You say all institutions are on the same page as us. Imran Khan, remember it doesn’t take time to turn the page. ”
Amid the anti-government movement in the country, a political activist from Mirpur in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) lashed out at Imran Khan’s government for the situation in the country, saying it was “at war with itself.” Activist Amjad Ayub Mirza wrote on his Facebook page on Saturday that “3 days ago, IG Sindh was kidnapped. Last night Ali Imran was kidnapped. Today, MNA Mohsin Dawar has been kidnapped. The Pakistani state is at war with itself. “
Mirza’s remarks came after Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) leader Mohsin Dawar was barred from leaving the airport as soon as he arrived in Quetta on Saturday in an attempt to prevent him from participating in the opposition Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) third rally in Quetta on Sunday.
In a Twitter post, Mohsin said he would not be intimidated and would not be silenced. In addition to Mohsin Dawar’s detention, PoK activist Amjad Mirza also mentioned the kidnapping of journalist Ali Imran Syed, who was credited with obtaining a recording of the arrest of Pakistan Muslim League leader (Nawaz) Captain (retired) Safdar Awan on October 19.
Safdar Awan, who is the husband of PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz, was arrested from his hotel room after the PMD rally. After that, the Sindh IGP, Mushtaq Mehr, was ‘kidnapped’ by Rangers who forced him to file an FIR for Safdar’s arrest.
The development generated extreme bitterness among police officers who retaliated by applying for leave. Almost all top police officers, including the three Additional GIs, 25 DIG, 30 SSP and dozens of SP, DSP and SHO in Sindh, applied for leave, in protest against “the hatred and heartache inflicted upon all ranks of the army by the unfortunate incidents of 18 and 19 October.
The incident sent shockwaves across the top Army brass with Army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa himself stepping in and ordering an investigation into the ‘Karachi incident’. Earlier this week, the Sindh Lawyers Council passed a resolution on Wednesday urging Pakistan’s Supreme Judge to take suo motu notification of Army’s interference in affairs following the kidnapping of the Sindh Police IG and the subsequent arrest of Captain Safdar Awan.
