Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad said on Sunday that Pakistan’s improving relations with several countries in the world, including the United States, China, Iran and Saudi Arabia, among others, indicate that Pakistan is developing under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan. .
He addressed a press conference in Islamabad where he explained several issues, including the Senate election, the PTI decision to award tickets to finance minister Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, and the Pakistan Democratic Movement, among others, according to Geo.tv.
Answering a question regarding the PDM’s protests against the incumbent government, Rasheed said that the government “will not create obstacles for the Democratic Movement of Pakistan (PDM) and allow it to stage protests because there has been no violation of the law.”
“I do, however, ask the PDM leadership to reschedule their protests after the Pakistan Day parade on March 23,” he said. “If the PDM doesn’t want to obey, it’s up to you but I ask as a patriotic Pakistani.”
Abdul Hafeez Sheikh will win the Senate elections
Extending support to Finance Minister Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, Rasheed said he would “win the Senate election.”
“Abdul Hafeez raised Pakistan’s economic slump since he took office,” said Sheikh Rasheed, adding that he attended the world’s best universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, and earned a doctorate in economics.
Speaking at a press conference in Islamabad, Sheikh Rasheed said that Abdul Hafeez turned a $ 20 billion current account deficit into a surplus through his efforts and supported Pakistan’s economic downturn.
PTI gave Abdul Hafeez a ticket for the general seat of Islamabad in the Senate elections, and his nomination documents were approved by the Election Commission of Pakistan.
Rasheed’s response came after PML-N spokesman Muhammad Zubair denounced PTI’s choice of Abdul Hafeez Sheikh as their candidate for the Senate election.
Abdul Hafeez is not a member of parliament and was previously appointed as Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Adviser on Finance. He was appointed Minister of Finance in December last year.
