All doors have been shut by Nawaz Sharif for his return, Sheikh Rashid

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed termed All Parties Conference (APC) of opposition as a failure on Saturday and said that all doors have been shut by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif for his return to Pakistan after his address at the moot.

Sheikh Rashid questioned the credibility of Nawaz Sharif in a programme as he spoke against the establishment, noting that Nawaz “was brought to power by the former military ruler General Ziaul Haq”, and added that he believes that “the PML-N supremo will now take political asylum in the UK”.

The PML-N supremo had lambasted Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government in his speech via video link from London, over what he described as its failure to govern the country democratically.

The major cause of problems being faced by Pakistan was that the country had been deprived of true democracy, Nawaz had regretted. “The Constitution says that the opinion of people should be respected, which is the real spirit of democracy,” he had said.

“This is the principle of democracy in the world: when democracy is hit, the entire democratic system becomes meaningless,” he had said.

Sheikh Rashid said a call made by Maulana Fazlur Rehman for resignations from the assemblies was muted by the APC itself.

“The expressions on the faces of Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Shehbaz Sharif at the APC were worth watching,” he remarked.

The federal minister said that military has no interest in administrative matters and added that the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has clearly told the political leaders to arrange the Gilgit-Baltistan elections on their own as the military is not interested in such matters.
