RAWALPINDI:- Sheikh Rashid Ahmad, the leader of the Awami Muslim League (AML), slammed the government for prioritising the arrest and disqualification of PTI Chairman Imran Khan above inflation and the state of the economy.
In a series of tweets, the former interior minister said that the PTI chief’s speech restriction and efforts to arrest him plainly demonstrated the government’s goals. He said that while PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif was busy visiting high-end businesses in London, the underprivileged were forced to live in disgrace.
He anticipated that the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa election schedules would be released this week, but warned that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) would go to any extent to postpone the elections.
He also replied to Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-suggestions Zardari’s of leaving the government over unmet pledges about flood victims’ rehabilitation. He said that the flood victims had not captured the attention of the foreign minister, who has also declared his intention to run for office and has threatened to leave the coalition administration.
